      Hi,

      This guy check raises the flop and then checks the turn, which imo shows weakness. On the river he overbets. Do you think this call is ok?

      I also want to ask if its ok raising pockets preflop. limpcalling is just to weak I think and if I raise it's less obvious that Im setmining, and I can still cbet bluff if a broadway comes.

      Hi Botia,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Villain looks really aggro over the sample we have so calling the flop is fine. But why do we check the turn once he checks to us?

      As played river is interesting because he checked turn and bets that card that completes some hands he could have raised with (QJ, TT). But if he is also aggro on the river we can look him up because our line also looked weaker (to an aggro fish).

      As far as pairs go you do want to raise them as it gives you a better chance to win with the hand (both pre and postflop).
