      How does he respond to double and triple barrels? I assume he is not folding pocket pairs on flop and will get sticky with a lot of them on turn.

      I've been experimenting recently with barelling backdoor draws, and making 1/2pot or even less river bets vs these calling station type players (note his wtsd%). I can't say for certain but it seems to be working pretty nicely so far. (although it is nasty OOP)

      I don't know how to calculate the ev possibilities but we can look at how many cards we can fire turn on:

      any :heart: , any J, Q K or A

      Thats 24 cards out of 47 remaining which seems like a good amount to me, add to that I'm starting to believe we have great fold equity vs these players on our third barrel it seems to me that its a great spot to cbet if you don't mind some variance.

      Hi Lunitis,

      I feel that our hand is strong enough to cbet and since he doesn't fold much we can even consider it as a light valuebet.

      It's true that the board is somewhat connected but I don't think it's a mistake betting ~2/3 pot.
