      villain is a 25/21/2.2
      16.2 3bet

      bets always vs missed


      So a pretty agressive oponent. I decide for a cr turn for even more value from flush draws and possible trips or 99, TT

      Thing is that river... i just check fold right?...


      But in case a flush doesnt show up, what do u think of check raise river?

      Cbet on flop is fine, might be slightly bigger.

      Once he bet/calls the turn what range do you give him?

      On river what part of his bet/call range on turn bets the river?

      Do you see him calling turn with TT and betting river? How about 8x? How about the rare Jx?

      So on the river, on this card, versus this villain we should really consider ck/folding. Most of his sets would get it in on the turn on such a board (or the flop when we bet).

      Hi,
      on river i would play bet fold for thin value form his sets. I have been thinking for a while if he is stackoffing all his set on turn but i think that our line on this board looks pretty strong so he can probably go for potcontrol on turn. But it really depeneds on your table image i guess.

      bet call turn he can do with 99 TT, flush draws i think, maybe AJ rarely

      on river i think only flush draws would bet

      I dont think hed bet any other part so i should bet river again if it does not complete flush?

      Thing is he might bet a missed flush on river

      Exactly so river is a ck/fold as played.

      On a blank he still has the same range skewed more towards draws. So if you think he can bluff again you can check to him. Otherwise you can bet small to induce a raise and/or light call. By small I mean $3-$4.
