      Hi!

      Villain;
      25/9/55h
      1/5 foldtocbet.

      So flop is std.

      Should we barrel turn or does this turn helps his range too much? I thought it was close because obv he can still folds hands like KJ and AQ/AJ floats on the turn. On the other hand now he would pbb not fold 77 and 88.

      Close close..

      Hi Farma,

      I think that if we bet the turn we should highly consider betting the river as well.

      I think hands like 77-88 can still call turn but fold river. Also he has Kx and Ax draws in his range that are better than our hand.

      A bet of $11 or so should do the trick.

      If we don't plan to be river without hitting I'd just ck/call the turn or ck/fold if he bets too large.

      I always think they'll look me up cause I can have a missed draw. So if he only folds his missed draws he wouldn't fold enough to make a riverbet +EV?

      It really depends on the players here.

      When you have value in this spot and bet do you get looked up light? And if we end up bluffing and he calls with let's say 3-rd pair we picked up a read and can start value owning him.
