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

      CO: $52.92 (105.8 bb)
      BTN: $17.55 (35.1 bb)
      SB: $27.32 (54.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $64.72 (129.4 bb)
      UTG: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q J
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.75) 5 A 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.75, Hero calls $1.75

      Turn: ($6.25) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($6.25) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, CO folds

      Anon table.

      CO played 22/22 after 20 hands.

      I thought that on this flop he will cbet 100% of his wider CO open range, so after my ch/call he could be honest about his hand by the turn, plus I have some backdoors.
      On the river I'm not sure about betting, I could even be ahead :D , but I didnt want to go ch/ch, and lose vs something like 66...

      Your explanation does make sense, but is this really +EV? In order for it to be +EV you need to make him fold once in 2 cases, but what if he doesn't fold his PPs on the river. What if he has 44 and is slowplaing the turn, what if he hits the flush? In this cases you will pay him off, but he will never give you the 2,5$ on the river if you have him beat. So I think this is not +EV.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Not a huge fan of floating those boards cause at the same time he has a lot of Ax hands in his range. Nor we don't even know that much about the opponent whilst he could easily just 2barrel you off.

      Best Regards.
