      SB checks, Hero bets $6.50, SB raises to $24.80 all in, Hero calls $15 all in

      I simply didnt understand what his representing with such a line. On the other hand he seemed aggro and maybe capable of turning his weak Ax or draws into a bluff , but really with such a line. I think this line is really value heavy but I dont understand what would play this way. Do you expect to see SB calling UTG OR with 8x and would really a hand like 89 call a Cbet on such a board? I would assume preflop slowplayed QQ or A8 would raise flop. Would you just give up because of his line regardless that you dont really understand what would play this way?

      Hello Sikac,

      You are missing a lot value here, Bet the flop & turn much bigger and could easily even shove the river. :)

      Though with your sizes and the idea of using it as block-bet rather Fold it on the river without any good reason to expect him to be bluffing this way. For him it just doesn't make sense to bluff on a blank, any Ax is a split anyways.

      Best Regards.
