Don't know what to think of that line from villain. How can a river check/push after I check back on the turn ever be for value ?

Hi Elda,

Preflop: Isolation on the BTN is fine and size is good too.

Flop: Cbet for value is good (and protection) but I'd make it bigger.

Turn: Why are we checking back turn here against a fishy player? There's a LOT of value in a bet and like this we just give him free cards.

River: It's possible that villain is bluffing however most fish would bet to bluff the river rather than ck/raise.

It's true that our small bet may induce and we may have to call but we are just guessing here since we know nothing about our opponent.

Considering his stack size I can see myself betting bigger on the flop and jamming turn (he only has 60 BB on flop).
