      thoughts?
      i flopped some equity so i thought that i'd float him since he looked like the type to cbet and give up. surprisingly he doesn't c/f the turn which left me at a loss

      UTG shows J:heart: A:diamond: (One Pair, Eights) (Pre 68%, Flop 69%, Turn 84%)
      Hero mucks J:club: Q:club: (One Pair, Eights) (Pre 32%, Flop 31%, Turn 16%)
      UTG wins $16.97

      how should i adapt - float 2/3? i think he was borderline folding but my sizing convinced him

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Well, but what are you making to fold with 1/2 pot size on the turn and Check behind the river. :D You are just wasting tons of money in long run, I'd be calling you most of the time there with Ace high and assume they are doing the same.

      Best Regards.

      it was just what his stats suggested, that he was weak enough :P also 5/6 cb flop 0/3 cbet turn 2/2 fold to turn float
      i thought -> he's a fish, he c/f overcards but this time he got some random weak pair hand which does not want to fold

      i mean, i'm not convinced that the play is bad in a vacuum :P
      but anyway, better to adjust by firing one 2/3 or two 1/2? one 2/3 is my default actually

      Very often if you Bet the turn you also have to Bet the river to get rid of Ace high type of holdings, so your 1/2 pot size doesn't have any affect into his calling range which will never fold there as I said = waste of money if not betting the river.
