      BU stats 16/12 AF:1,6 WTSD:28 W$SD:56 3bet:6 fold to f cbet:33 fold to t cbet:75 after 609 hands.

      Pre flop: standart open raise from CO.

      Flop: good board to cbet and we have Ad, so we can second barrel on Ax,Kx,Qx,Tx and all diamonds.

      Turn: we betting for value and protection from draws.

      River: He can call shove with JQ,AJ that is 12 combos, so my question is how would you play river?

      Hi The Winner,

      Preflop:looks fine

      Postflop: flop and turn look good.

      On the river we have to ask ourselves what are we vbetting against?

      It's nice that we have two pair but we have to consider his range. I would say that villains range is some rare QJ, AJ, JK, possilby QK (diamonds) and busted draws along with other potential slowplays.

      So what do we get value from? QJ/AJ, KJ and QK with JK/QK being the more combos in his range. With that being said I think a smaller bet may be better because I doubt we will get called pot size by those 1p type hands.

      Because you do have some hands against this villain and are likely to meet him again, be sure to make a note on how he played the hand
