      River: ($7.45) J :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Several complications arise in this hand.

      Preflop: Could maybe even be a 3Bet for value since it is sort of difficult to play without the initiative and OOP vs such an aggressive multibarreler?

      As played:

      Don't like my flop call. We are not really ahead vs villain's potential preflop range:


      Board: K:club: 5:club: 9:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    38.92%  37.10%   1.82% { AcJd }
      MP3    61.08%  59.26%   1.82% { 22+, A2s+, K8s+, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 76s, 65s, 54s, A9o+, K9o+, Q9o+, J9o+, T9o, 98o, 87o }


      Which means that we have to bluff villain off his hand very often at some point in the hand to make the call profitable + Villain 2nd barrels very often, which is the reason why we can't exactly hope that villain checks behind turn and gives up the river -> hence we can't make an OOP float.

      Not sure if check/calling the flop and donking any turn might work vs this guy. Can't really see a reason for making such play.

      Instead, I probably could have just gone for the check/raise vs villain's wide cBetting range with our backdoor nut FD + some backdoor SDs + 1 overcard.

      As played: As much as I don't like the call on the flop, I sort of do love the check/raise on the turn with our nut FD vs his potentially very wide double barreling range. I mean, we can't check/call and donking sort of makes less sense than check/raising, since we can get additional money from his bluff 2nd barrels. The river is a check/fold for me. We don't beat much.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Nor I don't really understand why are you calling the flop, standard fold I'd say. Nor of course I don't really understand the turn play either whilst you will rarely have much fold equity in those spots when he is 2nd barreling it. Too many hands continue on the flop and not the best board to fight back whilst also being OOP.

      Best Regards.

      How would you evaluate a check/raise on the flop? Villain seems loose preflop and could therefore also be a bit looser postflop as well and thus not a good idea?

      Cause it's super drawy and he could have a lot of those draws which means he also continues on the flop. We just have backdoor FD and that's it.
