      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      UTG: $20 (40 bb)
      MP: $74.65 (149.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $52.79 (105.6 bb)
      SB: $53.75 (107.5 bb)
      BB: $50.75 (101.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 T
      UTG posts BB OOP, UTG checks, MP folds, Hero raises to $2, 3 folds, UTG calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.75) 6 3 K (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $3, UTG calls $3

      Turn: ($10.75) J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($10.75) 9 (2 players)
      UTG bets $10.75, Hero calls $10.75


      Anon table.

      UTG is a fish obviously. Cbet flop in the first place? Rather barrel this turn?
      As played, river call? What is he potting for value there? FD busted, AK/KQ could have raised preflop, so mainly backdoor straight with QT, some twopairs, and slowplayed 33/66.

      cbet is fine.

      I don't think the fish will bluff here often, probably never. Even if, I think there are better spots to wait for where you can easily exploit the fish. This spot is a bit of a guessing game and I think I would fold here. I think it's a -EV call.

      My plan here at the turn & river is c/f.

      I like flop.

      The problem is that until we have info that villain can make this river bluff I don't think we should be calling.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Yup, agree about the line of rather giving it up than making those hero-calls. Vs a bad player we will have tons of better spots to get money from him. Obviously it will time to time happen that he shows up with some missed FD, we can't exclude it but if he is also willing to bluff like that.

      Best Regards.

      Could we cBet a bit smaller on the flop given that villain is a shortstack + the flop is not of the scariest kind? Say, ~$2.50?

      I mean, I would even cBet ~$2.50 vs fullstacked fish unless I'd be doing it for value. I doubt we gain a lot more fold equity by making it $3. Although the difference is indeed small.

      Way too small difference. :) I'd even more likely willing to go for bigger Bet to avoid him floating against us with Ace high.
