      Turn: ($2.00) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero ??



      1st thought was should I 3b here since he folding alot to 3bets vs BB but then I looked in my hand it looked not bad so I didn't want to change my hand into completely bluff.

      FLOP : This board is good for raise cb vs weak villain. Villain has smallish WTSD and 46% fold to cb raise. Now how we calculate if our raise is going to be profiable ?

      Is it : (bet / bet + pot) *100% = FE ?
      In this case : (0.8/ 0.8+0.7)*100% ~ 53% so if number of my FE is greater than his fold to cb raise is it EV+ ?

      Turn since he called I see in his range Qx type hands most the time only and sets for sure.

      Hi,

      Raising the Flop here is purely an explotive play. If you think he just folds really often you can attack the PFR in this spot some % of the time.

      If you bother about being somewhat balanced though, I think we will often be 3betting AQ preflop, and we often call KQ/QJ/QT on the paired Flop. I think I prefer raising the Flop with backdoor draws, something like Jc9x or Jh9h, so that we can barrel more Turn cards.

      If we are raising any two cards here I think we may be raising too often here but in a vacuum I think it's reasonable.

      On the Turn I don't like barreling blanks. We should bet clubs to rep some flop flush draw semibluff raises but just give up on all other turn cards.

      Thanks.

      We are risking 80cents more to win a pot of 1.50. Thus, our bluff needs to work 53% of the time.

      If we get folds >53% of the time (which I'm pretty confident you can achieve in a vacuum), then go ahead and do it.

      But good players will pick up on the fact that you are often bluff raising such paired flops and they will start to bet/call Flop with Ace high and play back at you by 3bet bluffing sometimes.

      Thanks.
