      PF 3x+1BB because you`re OOP

      Flop cbet ok

      Turn: bet bigger and you can bet/fold IMO if he shoves, you will really rarely get raised by a worst hand and mostly called by worst Ax.

      if he calls

      River: x/fold is fine, depending on the villain. (check riv agg for villain)

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger being OOP vs 3bb.
      Postflop: Bet the turn still bigger, your play just looks weak, though we should be planning to Bet/Fold the turn and nor not many worse hands pay you on the river which means Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.

      Excuse me Veriz, but how is this different from Example ?
      In that case, raising on the flop is bad, because its raise/fold, so we are turning our hand into a bluff.

      In this case on the turn, we bet/fold, so isn't it the same, turning our hand into a bluff thing? Or in this case it isnt, because worse hands can actually call.

      In your example raising would be turning your hand into a bluff... here our bet on the turn is not doing that, we`re betting the turn to get value from worst Ax`s.

      If he really is a station, you can easily bet 3 str w that hand. He will call you down with many Ax hands, maybe even with worse hands.

      Why would you be turning your hand into bluff if the guy may easily even have worse hands in his range and you may instead even protect your hand vs 1card FD. :) Those hands are way different you linked, take a closer look and definitely you have to be able to find the difference.
