      Hi,

      I didn't want to cbet the flop as it is very draw heavy (this is check/fold for me usually).
      After no bet on flop, I think I am check/calling turn AND river (unless river bet is out of character, ofc.) Is this play ok?

      Thanks a lot :heart:

      I'd usually bet the turn and river with any two against a guy like this.

      Why?

      I was inclined to check/call because I am thinking he would fold anything weaker than the K showing if I led on K turn, so my best chance to make a little bit of money is to hope he bets my K weakness and turns whatever he has into a bluff.

      If I bet turn and river, would he stay with anything I beat?

      We actually talked about this hand on the coaching yesterday.

      I think the conclusion was:

      We could bet the flop for fold equity with him runnign at 67% fold to cbet.
      Then barrel the turn and river for value. He may float you on the turn with a PP or call you down with a worse K.

      Betting the turn also protects your K from FD's.


      When I said I'd bet with any 2 on the turn, I did so because I think he may float PP's once but would most likely fold to 2 barrels after the K on the turn.

      Hello MisClick,

      Skipping the Bet on the flop ain't really wrong and dependent on the opponent. Though you should have Bet the turn & river yourself whilst he has shown weakness with his Check on the flop. We still need to protect our hand.

      Best Regards.
