      (Rake: $0.04)

      I DOMINATE THE GUY, he has THREE outs, and sucks out. Does it make sense to put it in 0.2$ to make his THREE(3!!!!) outer fold? This is insane, I correctly see, that this is a WA/WB. (If he has a pair, I'm WB, if not, I'm WA. MOST of the times I win this hand, without Cbetting. I just stopped CBETTING as a bluff/dead money enirely, because toomany times I get called in WB situation, and whem I'm WA, it dont need to risk money. E:G: here: If he has a J, or 8, HES NOT FOLDING anyways, and I'm putting in money while I'm behind.
      When he has AT, he's so behind, I dont care whether it folds, because I only loose if I get FUCKIN unlucky

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: He sucks out because you let him to. Why are you checking this flop?

      Your reasoning is purely results oriented. We bet the flop to take down the pot and collect the dead money. We also get some thin value versus draws or random floats he has. So we want to bet. Checking does nothing for us against an unknown fish like him except put us in a spot where we need to play a guessing game.

      As played that river is an easy fold. That 15c is never a weaker hand than yours. It's always some sort of pair.
