      Hero (BTN): $6.93 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 4.1, Hands: 19117
      SB: $20.56 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 24, 3B: 15, AF: 2.0, Hands: 33

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with T :heart: Q :club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 2 :spade: 6 :diamond: 8 :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.72) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB raises to $1.38, Hero folds

      I think the 2B is a bad idea, since some pockets, 8x and stronger are a good part of his flop calling range, and we can represent nothing on a 8 most of the time.

      Hi German,

      What range do you think villain will call your flop bet with?

      On the turn, what range do you want him folding and what's the plan for river if called?

      Yup.

      So I expect him to call with 8x, like K8s, middle pockets and stronger, plus occasional OESD and some floats.

      On the turn I can make fold only floats, so it kinda sucks.

      If we were called on the turn as well, on the river I bet for thin value when I hit against his pockets (like <1/2 pot), and I check or fold all other cases.

      Do you think that given the info that we have that villain floats that light OOP on that dry board?

      I wouldn't expect him to float that light so there's not a lot we can get to fold on that turn.

      Cool, Bogdan, so a good situation for a float (or to expect one) is:
      • IP
      • HU
      • Draw heavy board that the PFA is likely to miss
      • PFA CBF a lot and CBT little
      • A draw card we can represent comes on the turn

      Did I miss something? TY

      IT depends on the villain really but by defaul (vs unknown reg) I don't assume that he'd be floating that light OOP on a dry board. Them floating lighter would be the exception rather than the rule.

      All of those points you mentioned can increase the likelihood of being floated.

      Thank you. I'll try floating myself only when most of these points are achieved.
