      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.81, Hero raises to $5.70, MP3 calls $3.15 and is all-in

      $13.73 pot ($0.68 rake)
      Final Board: J 9 2 5 K
      MP3 showed A A and won $13.05 ($6.21 net)
      Hero showed 8 8 and lost (-$6.84 net)

      on the turn i had the idea to call and check/shove river on a scared card like any diamond K or 8 ofcourse

      maybe we are not deep enough to try something like this but i guess i am not bluffing here that often and he can find a fold

      Hi W4terman,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Considering we play against a short opponent that we know nothing about why are we not just folding the flop?

      Calling here to turn our hand into a bluff will be a sure way to lose money. Remember we want to valuebet fishy looking players not bluff them. No need for these type of moves at these limits (plus our line can look like a bluff too when draws miss and villain has too little money behind so he gets good odds for the call).
