      Hi,

      I think you should raise a lot bigger on the turn. Think of how much is in the pot and how wet that board is! You get called extremely often since villain ALWAYS has reasonable equity.

      River is still a vbet imo, I would bet 6 usually.. I don't expect 2pairs or straight to ever fold and flushes are not much of a concern. Flushes raise river anyway, so it's easy to play vs those.

      so the raise can get called easily on wet boards so I should raise bigger? :f_biggrin:

      so I will bet $6 on the river next time,if I get raised,its fold,right?

      Heya,

      Yep... Nothing is drawing dead on wet boards so they can call much bigger raises.

      River is a bet/fold imo, too often it would be a flush and worse straights/sets get it in on the turn.
