      this was a bit of a strange hand and i felt a little sick bluffing against a bad player this way. the minraise pre says it all and i decided to call IP.. maybe this is bad?

      also i don't really see any reason to raise here. so when he c/c ott i doubt he has a Q because i jsut expect him to 2xbarrel with that sort of hand. so his range consists of either draws or some weaker SDV hand. once the river bricks all draws i think if i bet i can take the pot by credibly representing a Qx hand. is this just spew vs a weak player like this?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: If the player in SB is a fish I don't like min raising the BTN. We should open 3x for value (our steal range will be smaller/stronger with a fish behind).

      As played I'd just call his min 3-bet w/ position.

      Flop: We have a really strong combo draw here but it would most likely still be too light to get it all in on the flop.

      So I don't mind calling and betting the turn as you did however I really don't like our bet size.

      Since our plan is to bet almost every river we should bet bigger on the turn:
      A) pot is bigger when we hit
      B) pot is bigger when we bluff and take it down (as played).

      Considering how villain played and bet I like our river bet. It's possible that he folds a hand that already beat like TJ but he can also fold A high and various smaller pairs.

      I'd probably bet about the same, maybe 1.7+

      ah of course.. your comments about turn play make so much sense. i can't imagine why i thought this would be a good sized bet.

      and about the preflop sizing, i usually just open 2.5x otb as standard but party doesn't let me do this without me having to type it in every time :rolleyes: i'll keep this idea in mind tho and start opening larger vs players who obviously don't pay attention :) i do it sometimes, but other times i just dont think about it.

      thanks for the eval!
