      BB wins $1.99


      Villain is 61/32 over 110 hands.

      My question is mostly about the river here. Of course the flush draw did get there on the turn. But I called the river bet anyway, because I thought might also be betting some missed draws, like QJ or maybe some weaker tens like JT and QT.

      Or would it be better to just fold it anyway?

      Hello,

      Preflop having this guy on BB I'd raise to 3bb.

      I'd bet $0.4 on the flop.

      I prefer betting turn again. We can get value out of worse hands (like PPs/Tx/draws), also could take a free showdown.
      The other good think is that we don't have to call a river bet.

      As played on the turn, calling against this bet is fine.
      What would you do if he bet $0.9 instead?

      Best,
      Plamen

      I'd probably call if he bet any bigger as well after we checked back the turn, because he might easily be betting some busted draw or worse Tx here.

      Do you really think there's that many hands that are going to call another bet? When the third flush draw comes, I can imagine he's going to fold most of his Tx hands to another bet, tbh. The only draws I can image here would be QJ and maybe some sort of Ax with the ace of clubs, really. So rather than force all weak draws out by betting, I'd prefer checking to maybe call a river bet if the river card isn't too bad.

      I think he wouldn't bet river with weaker hand :)

      I think the main problem here is that most of the draws got there.
      It's pretty ugly spot and I really want to escape from these situations, so this is why I would rather bet the turn myself.
      Also, yeah, I do think that the average 61/32 opponent won't really fold Tx most of the time especially if he has a club.

      Okay. Makes sense I suppose :)

      Thanks!
