      hi all,

      2/4 4bet vs hero. We had some aggro dynamics.
      57 w$sd

      Preflop:
      std

      Flop:
      Should we CB? I thought his callingrange vs a UTG open will mostly be PP's so I decided to fire with GS+overs

      Turn:
      BAM nuts! With our dynamics I decided to check and check/raise and never expect him to fold Jx. He also may have floated something so...
      I raise small to look bluffy.

      River:
      I think he could still have floated or have a missed draw so I checked.

      Hi farma,

      F: it's fine for sure, you can 2barrel many cards like A/K/Q/T.
      T: I don't really like c/r on this card. Personally i only c/r on boards where people tend to float a lot. So if flop was JTXss and turn was a blank card, I would c/r some nutted hands and some bluffs. But on this runout, it doesn't make too much sense to c/r bluff here because that card improves the caller's range more.
      R: Just jam it in yourself if you think he doesn't fold JX.

      overall I just think you are fancy playing too much, without any idea of what you want to achieve. Your line is quite hard to balance and the River line doesn't make too much sense too. Maybe if the board paired (like if the river was a Jack) then I might check. It would mean that he has way fewer JX (and thus have a higher proportion of busted flush draws). He would also be likelier to valuebet JX thinly himself.

      And when board pairs, in general people bluff less often cos others just don't fold so much (fewer 2p and set combinations). So betting in those spots make you look really strong vs good hand readers.

      With our dynamics I believed that Jx would shove the turn over my x/r to protect. I thought that he was way more likely to have draws.

      I don't really care about balancing on my limit. There are maybe 5 players or less trying to find my leaks in HEM. I never saw this guy before so I don't plan to have exact ranges for certain spots. I think dynamics are more important in these spots?
