      BU stats 67/0 AF:0,3 after 9 hands.

      Now I think that i should bet bigger on the flop and on the turn, what about river? I just beat few Ax hands, but he can have alot of FD hands like 9hxh and I think he is calling with 9 on the river.

      B/f flop/turn 80% pot

      c/f river

      Calculate his range, flop 2nd pair got 3 overs now also he could have a ton of better aces or two pairs

      Hi TheWinner,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I agree with you that flop and turn could definitely be larger.

      On the river, we beat A2, A4, A5 and A6 and lose to AJ/AQ/A9 and some potential slowplays.

      He doesn't have a ton of 9x but could have hands like TT-JJ so a valuebet is indeed on the thin side.

      Considering we don't know if he can bluff his missed draws betting small is probably better than ck/calling or even ck/folding but it's very thin.
