      villain unknown 37/29/38hands

      original plan was to triple good boards, with BD equity..
      Would you just give up this turn?

      I chose betting since he can still have a lot of one pair hands, i think the top parts of his range are usually raising flop. In that case i can fire decent rivers as well to make him fold..

      On this river i wasn't sure if the 7 was a scare card for his one pair hands or if it helps him often, but seeing as it might give him a few 2 pairs i just gave up.

      Betting twice seems kind of bad

      Hero (BTN): $30.37 (121.5 bb)
      SB: $17.85 (71.4 bb)
      BB: $24.79 (99.2 bb)
      UTG: $21.44 (85.8 bb)
      MP: $15.14 (60.6 bb)
      CO: $26.36 (105.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 Q
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB calls $0.40, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.25) 5 6 T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.90, SB calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.05) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.90, SB calls $1.90

      River: ($6.85) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Results:
      $6.85 pot ($0.31 rake)
      Final Board: 5 6 T 2 7
      Hero mucked 9 Q and lost (-$3.30 net)
      SB showed 4 2 and won $6.54 ($3.24 net)

      I would give up on this turn, its not a scarecard at all, nor you gain equity on the turn , and I think his not folding much here.

      Hello dannywratten,

      Especially as he doesn't even have a full stack which indicates him being a bad player you wont have much fold equity, Check behind the turn. The idea of betting the flop is mainly to gain a free card for the river.

      Best Regards.
