      checked on the flop , cuz there are so few hands that call me for value and i am not scared of a lot of cards on the turn and i think i can get value easily if i check the flop.
      On the turn i cant see why should i raise there so i called.
      River i folded. I have hard time there putting him on a range. (No sample on fold to 3bet also)

      Hey Larts1,

      Preflop 3bet is good. It's probably reasonable to assume SB will call quite wide given his stack size and VPIP/PFR so far.

      Flop is super-dry, not a good texture for extracting value. Going for a delayed cbet is a good option.

      Turn is a mandatory call given the price you get imo.

      River fold is good, it looks like SB is taking a value line, and could easily have Kx or 8x (especially if he calls wide pf).

      If we assume we are ahead on turn given the line, why not call river on blank? He bets just 1/2 pot
      I agree that his line when he bets so small turn looks like nuts, at least Kx, but isn't it better than to fold turn, because we can't expect him to ch river once he bets so small turn.
      I think he could bet AJ, AQ like that, also PP which try to fold your obvious JJ-QQ. His stat looks like fish, on small sample. We block KQ, so there is AK left which calls 3bet which he probably 4bets. Also there are not many 8x in his range (we don'T know how wide he calls 3bet). He is fish, so he can even bet for value Tx.

      We could. But in general we are making two assumptions here that are not necessarily good to make vs unknown micro-stakes player (but likely a fish).


      1. That he's capable of 2barreling as a bluff.
      2. That he has a clue what our range looks like when we check back flop.

      Don't get me wrong, the river is not a snap fold. I don't hate a call. But as a result of basic assumptions I make about unknown fish, I think it's a fold.

      One of those assumptions is that fish call 3bets wide enough to easily hold an 8x here.
