      Hey Veriz,

      I'm not sure wheter I should play my QQ as bluffcatcher or just bet for value twice.

      Stats:
      Just got a few hands on him. He plays only 1 table and he isn't fullstacked = Fish. Looks passive.

      Flop: Because he looks passive I think it is better to bet this flop whilst he could have some draws too.

      River: As played I am not sure wheter to bet for value or not. I thought I could do it vs some smaller pairs. At the same time, he could have a flush and thus maybe it's better to go for the safe approach and check/fold it.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Don't get the purpose of betting the river. Doesn't really make sense cause clearly you ain't getting called from a lot worse, rather turning hand into bluff.

      Best Regards.

      Allright, thought so... But what about my check/call line OTF? :)

      If we assume that we going to get more profit from him this way and he ain't super-aggressive then this is the way to go. Or other option would be to CB for value.

      Though vs very aggressive players it will be difficult to play the hand whilst you gonna need to call more streets.
