      SB checks, Hero ?

      I get stuck in this spots very often, when i have thin value with a hand thats not nuts. I get very confuse when i get raised because i cant know if i induced a bluff with the small size, so to avoid hard decisions (and tilt if i wrongly call) some times i prefer just to check thin value hands.

      Hi.

      Flop: Hmm raising here is kind of close, but if we call I think PFR may bluff raise us here a ton. I suppose it's fine.

      Turn: Start betting huge now.

      River: I'm not too afraid of the straight. It's not as though the board is T987, whereby you can have straights on 2 ends. Over here the board is T986, meaning that only 7X has straights. I think he has a ton of two pairs here and he's definitely not folding those. I won't be surprised to see some one pairs as well.

      I'm half potting here (I think you are losing value if you bet smaller than half pot), and folding to a raise cos he's really passive.

      Thanks.

      Fold here.

      Based on his AF I think he is never bluffing here. When you make block bets, stick with the plan. Don't make blockbets without knowing whether you are calling or folding vs the raise.

      This passive donk will be very happy to take his 20% pot odds here and call with his AT or T9.
