      Hero?

      Induce bluff? Or bet for value? What if he has a missed draw which could push here, but wont call? If he has an overpair, he should bet anyways.
      Both options are good, but which one is better? :P

      well played, good line and good bet sizings. :f_biggrin:

      river is interesting.
      pushing will most likely only get paid by 9x, but i think i like something like a $0.40-0.60 bet better slightly better than a check. :f_biggrin:

      it gets some lol-value from pocket pairs (he shouldn't have a lot of them in his river range, but they will most likely NOT bet themselves), it puts missed draws in a really awkward spot, and 9x will raise you anyway. :P

      Good points there Tomaloc.

      WIth 9x hands all the money goes in.

      If he has a missed FD/SD, he could bet big here.

      With small pairs, he will chb, or call a little bet.

      The question is, is inducing bluff by checking OR getting think value from PPs is more +ev?

      I think betting sth. like 1/3 or a little bit under 1/2 pot is the best line here. You could get called by many worse hands, and some worse PP's may try to bluff you (though it's rare on this level). Ofc, if there is 9x, you'll get it all-in whether you bet min or max :D

      the main point is, you also want to induce a bluff by missed draws. so you achieve everything :f_biggrin:

      think about if you had a missed draw in his spot.
      you have a missed draw on the river and were going to just give up, but suddenly the guy fires a 1/10 pot bet. :f_eek:
      how many curse words would you scream there? :D
