      Poker Stars $5.00 No Limit Hold'em - 4 players - View hand 2036260
      DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

      BB: $22.91 - VPIP: 37, PFR: 30, 3B: 13, AF: 4.8, Hands: 103
      Hero (CO): $5.00 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 70506
      BTN: $1.67 - VPIP: 74, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 3.0, Hands: 19
      SB: $5.51 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 14, 3B: 10, AF: 1.6, Hands: 76

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with A :spade: K :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 8 :spade: 9 :diamond: 5 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      Turn: ($1.17) 7 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45

      River: ($2.07) 9 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.67, Hero calls $0.67

      With an SPR of 3 vs this loose guy I think there is no way folding this hand. Rather let him bet-bet-bet. "but we have no info about the guy"-so? just because we miss, it doesnt mean he hits

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: While you are true that just because we miss it doesn't mean he hits it's also true that we can't expect an unknown villain to 3-barrel air here often.

      If we really like our hand why not ck/raise at some point, maybe gain some FE?

      Either way I think that we are just spewing money versus unknown. Any advantage we have is minimal at best because we are simply guessing/gambling.

      He's so loose, I think there is no better hand that folds if I raise, that is why I let him bet. It is true though, that unknown 3barrel isnt weak.

      You didnt comment his open raise of 4BB. Is it ok?
      I noticed in his previous posts, he open raises 3BB.

      So isn't it obvious he is playing 4BB with premium hands?
      I am always making notes how much people usually open raise, and if I see they open raise 4BB at some point I dont enter pot except with PP.

      I am quite sure that he won the hand with a bad hand but better than yours because of his small size bet on river, where he doesnt expect you to fold.
      I would rather call his bigger size bet than small size as bluff catcher.

      He had Q :diamond: 2 :heart: , and I won the hand, stacking him by letting him bluff.
      There should be an Imimba1 theorem: just because I miss, it doesnt mean villain hits. I'm really sick and tired of always seeing monsters under the bed, giving up pots as soon as we miss. It's like we only go for fat value.
