      no hands on him


      Is my cbet fine? I expect him to call a lot, but still I have overcards and fd. turn give up ok? River bet because I expect him not to have Tx, and maybe he folds weak PP, or missed fd

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop and flop look fine.

      On the turn we don't really have too much FE so unless we bet a lot of rivers we can go for check/fold

      As played we don't represent a whole lot on the river besides some Jx hands so if the player is any good I expect to get called here even by A high. However this guy seems fishy (75 BB) so he may be able to fold some A high hands and maybe weak pairs.

      But I so often bet flop check call turn with Top pair medium kicker. And sometimes check raise. I could also try to bluff him with weak PP e.g. 22 to fold his better hand, so I dont think he can really call so light especially Ax

      Even on boards like this?

      Wouldn't you expect a regular to cbet their entire value range (or at least the top of their value range) on that turn?

      I doubt you would ever check JJ+, TK+, flushes, etc.
