      Hello guys

      Villain:
      28/22/530h
      5.8 3b total
      3 af
      1/12 db
      18 wtsd

      btn is fishy.

      I guess the one who leads never bluffs and can perfectly have sets here? Maybe also KQ so I should call flop... He bets turn again pretty large so just fold turn?

      And what to do as played on blank river vs a bet?

      Is it part of your strategy to openraise smaller from CO? :)

      Otherwise I'd play it the same. I dont think we could ever fold such a blank turn, especially when he is betting so small.
      On the river flush got there, and he bets again, and all we beat is a bluff or some weird overplay, so I'd fold.

      Hi

      Flop and turn are standard. River could be a call when we have the nut flush blocker. We do beat some busted straight draws like QJ. But folding is fine too assuming his range here preflop contains many speculative hands like 89s.

      Thanks.

      So on a blank river we have to call? Isn't this a line that is never a bluff?

      We still beat some parts of his value range (maybe he overplays KQ), and also he has busted draws on a blank. I don't see how we can fold on a blank, especially when we are getting something like 25-30% pot odds.
