      Hi Bosiati,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why are we check/calling turn and ck/folding river? What's our reasoning behind that?

      Can't villain play Jx like this and other hands (semibluffs)?

      I think that if you ck/call turn we have to ck/call river especially on such a blank.

      As played though bet/folding turn is far superior. I'd make it about 2/3 pot.

      Thank you!
      "What's our reasoning behind that?"
      I think he can semeibluff with AsQ or AsJ turn, and I thought if he bet the river he has flush, not bluff.

      As your opinon, If i bet turn 2/3 pot, then:
      - blank river, what I have to do? b/f, ch/f, ch/c?
      - heart river? b/f? ch/c?

      Thanks bosiati

      Hi Bosiati,

      Why not ck/raise the turn then after he bets? Surely we want to maximize value versus his AhX and other hands he bets there.

      On a blank river, this deep, we can bet/fold still to get value form Jx or even TT type hands.

      On a heart river, that's non Ah we can bet really small and fold or just ck/fold. I doubt that he would call two streets to bluff the river or bet worse on a heart.

      OMG! Yesss. The best option is ch/raise on the turn. Why didn't think it!?
      Thank you very much sir!

      Hi

      Check raising here is overplay and is by far the worst option. Betting is far superior. You are repping sets and flushes so i dont think he calls down light. And kk is way too strong to use as a bluffcatcher on the turn so i would jst bet for value.
