      Villain seems to be loose and passive

      Flop: I think villain's preflop calling range is fairly wide, something like: 22-QQ, any AX, KX and anything suited or connecting.


             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     78.69%  78.44%   0.26% { KhKc }
      SB     21.31%  21.05%   0.26% { QQ-22, A2s+, K5s+, Q7s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, A7o+, K9o+, Q9o+, J9o+ }


      I think villain can donk the flop with TP+ and draws/combo-draws (6x,67,56,46, 88, 78 etc). It was between raise/fold or calling and re-evaluating the turn. Due to his AF I decided to just call because:
      1) I did not want to ISO myself versus a stronger range or risk turning my hand into a bluff
      2) I can't be sure villain plays DB/3b-broke with TP/OP's or combodraws

      Turn: Turn card doesn't change much IMO, so I call T for same reasons as on F (basically a WAWB/pot control line). Don't think I need to protect vs FD's too much since runner runner flushes are less likely since F was rainbow.

      River: When villain checks R I think he either has a missed draw, TP, maybe a weak OP looking to c/c. I can either x/beh for a free showdown or b/f 1/2-2/3 for value. I chose to b/f for value because I expected him to go to showdown with weaker pairs very often.

      Hi,

      seems fine. You can always raise flop, but board is a littlebit drawy and SB should more include small or medium pp-s, also if he is bluffing you rather let him bluff.
      Since worse hands likely don´t get call if you raise turn then playing it way ahead/way behind seems also fine.

      I would bet 1.1$ on the river- very likely you´re ahead and showdown value hands would often call your river bet

      best regards,

      Thanks Kaitz20

      A few more questions regarding this hand
      1) Against the following lines, what would you play be and why?

      a) Villain DB's, Hero Raises:

      SB: $4.00 28/6/2/0/21/54 hands - seems LP

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has K:club: K:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, fold

      Flop: ($0.28, 2 players) 5:diamond: 4:spade: 7:club:
      SB bets $0.20, Hero raises....

      My plan here would have to be raise/fold since I would not expect him 3b the flop and go broke with TP's and OP's, unless he was particularly aggressive. Would this be correct?

      b)Villain checks, Hero bets, villain x/raises

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has K:club: K:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, fold

      Flop: ($0.28, 2 players) 5:diamond: 4:spade: 7:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 0.19, SB raises 0.57, Hero....?

      I would also plan to bet/fold the flop here as well mostly. Although being in position I might b/c and re-eval Turn, probably folding most turns if he barrells and if he checks I would x/beh T and re-eval R. Would this be correct?

      Q2) RE: River bet sizing

      I would bet 1.1$ on the river- very likely you´re ahead and showdown value hands would often call your river bet


      Should we bet bigger because if he x/c's R then he always does it with worse (i.e he will almost never x/c and show us AA/5x/FH's and Straights). And everytime he x/raises the river we assume he only does this with trips+ and we always fold and lose no more than $1.10 ever.
