      Villains are regs nothing special to say about their games. How should i play this hand on flop ?!. Calling turn is better than 3 beting ?! What about river ?

      Hi Dzikson,

      Preflop: looks fine although if they are regs we can even squeeze here (squeeze/shove depends on our image/dynamics but its' possible).

      Flop: Checking flop is fine. It's very unlikely that they have much and Ax will lose a lot of money anyway. We need to maximize value versus everything else (which is the bulk of their range).

      Turn: I actually like the call here. A 3-bet would look really strong and we want them to call here with a draw or Qx.

      River: I don't mind raising to $9 or so here. If villain has a good hand (that can call a shove) he'll get the money in with you anyway. But if he has a weaker hand like a Qx (which is what this bet is implying) he won't call a shove.

      Don't forget his bet here polarizes his range a lot. The nut part almost always stacks off.
