      Anon-tables. Fi had like 25/11 WTSD 0, 2.0 agf over 70 hands. no other reads or stats that I can remember. Didn't want to bet turn as if I get called im mostly ahead, I fold out air/draws that can bluff river and I do expect to get c/r here sometimes?

      On the river, I don't think he reps much else than KJ,KQ, sets and rarely AQ(?). Doubt he valuebets a jack here. So, is it ok to bluffcatch vs missed draws?

      Hey Lodinn,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop is ok, there are a decent amount of draws that can call you, and some worse Tx.

      I agree with your comments on turn. You don't get called by worse often enough and some of villains range has improved. KTs,KJs,KQ,AQ, maybe AK/Q9s.

      River is close. I'd probably fold. It's not just a question of which hands villain gets to the river with but also whether he'd bluff those hands. You need to have best hand around 30%.

      He can potentially be value betting KTs/KJs/KQ/AQ/Q9/JJ/TT (49 combos). In his bluff range he can have 89s and a bunch of suited connectors and one-gappers in spades. (I wouldn't necessarily include one-gappers in his calling range, but he obviously has them). I'd estimate this would amount to about 17 combos of bluffing hands.

      If he ALWAYS bluffed and ALWAYS had a bunch of low suited gappers in his range he'd probably only be bluffing 25% of the time given the combinatorics. Not enough to call.
