      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      Hero (BTN): $137.24 (274.5 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $16.09 (32.2 bb)
      CO: $51.83 (103.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 A
      CO raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, 2 folds, CO calls $3

      Flop: ($9.75) 2 4 4 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5, CO calls $5

      Turn: ($19.75) Q (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $10, CO calls $10

      River: ($39.75) T (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks


      Anon table.

      CO played 22/15 after 25 hands.

      Jam river? Qx is not very likely for him to have (maybe some floats), and he should fold 55-99 to a shove. I'm not sure about JJ though...

      Hi.

      You could try, but i wouldnt shove here as a standard. He def could have all combos of AQ and u are not guaranteed a fold from TT

      And what about twobarreling vs just checkbehind and giveup flop?
      If we cbet on this board, should we bet most turncards no matter what, or just "scarecards" (broadways, plus maybe 8 for thin value)? I mean if it runs out 442r-6, is it a good line to cbet flop, and giveup turn? Cause then maybe it's better to just checkback flop...

      Again the best play here is very dependent on villain.

      Vs a tight range of KQs AJs AQ and pocket pairs, your fold equity on the Flop is actually very low (if he doeesn't fold AJ and AQ). Thus you would need to 2barrel or 3 barrel a lot to make a flop cbet profitable.

      Vs a much wider range, you could either just bet once to take down the pot vs random non Ace high unpaired cards like T9s, or if his range is super wide you can try to showdown with Ace high and bluff catch on many various cards.

      You could also argue that a 2446 board is better than a 244Q board in some situations. Q is an obvious scare card and maybe he doesn't give u credit. AQ is also the most common unpaired hand in his range. But if you bet turn on 2446 you should shove River too.
