      Hello, I call preflop because the villain didn't seem like the greatest player. Anyways I call on the flop with the intention of floating and I have the gutshot and backdoor FD. On the turn I'm getting 2.6:1 odds which is not far off the 3:1 for FD and gutshot and I figure IP my implied odds are good enough for a call. When the straight hits and villain checks, what sort of betsize would you recommend? Should I go for thin value or just pot size it. If I pot size it villain probably isn't calling as the check probably means he was bluffing or had Kx.

      Thanks

      i would bet around $3 to rep missed fds/sds/etc. it seems likely you are bluffing on this river so i would be inclined to go big and vbet vs Kx/Ax hands

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Preflop: Well, you can't really cause you think he is a bad player. You also must understand what he does postflop. Maybe is aggressive and likes to barrel and might not even able to play your hand profitable this way. Nor you wont hit often enough of course.

      As played
      Postflop: Fold the flop, cause floating doesn't make sense if you don't even have any assumptions what he does on the turn. Also your GS clearly ain't clean with FD on board. Also the same applies for the turn whilst you don't have implied odds there -> aka fold. Perfect example why rather fold the hand preflop to avoid such mistakes.

      Well, what can you represent on the river with huge Bet? Any strong hand would have raised earlier? ;)

      Best Regards.
