      Well ,preflop it's standard.

      Flop ,that's interesting flop for me ...he opens about 30% of his range from EP (small sample) and cbets 90% of his hands.

      So ...I was scared of overkart and I could get some value from FD so I raised it like this ...He called ..

      Turn: Because of his call on the flop I gave him flush draws (I was blocking Tc :s_cool: ,well it's not so cool :s_biggrin: ) and maybeeeeeeeee some overpairs...

      I did cbet again ,because this card is partly good for me I can make him fold his JJ or QQ.

      He calls again and I'm almost sure that he has FD and after his check on the river I was really sure about it ,so it didnt make sense to me to make some thin value bet..

      Hi Treyking,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: All FDs that he can have do have at least one overcard which means they have roughly 50% equity versus us. The rest of his calling range is made up of hands that just kill us (overpairs) so I don't see pure value in our raise.

      So I would simply call the flop.

      As played I doubt he folds JJ/QQ for such a small bet (less than half pot).
