      Villain is a kind of bad reg.

      Flop is really dry and I have back door equity. Once he fires such a weak cbet on the flop I decide to call and see what I can do on later streets. I do not give this guy credit for being able to do a thin value cbet!

      Once he goes 1/2 pot again on the turn I decide to semibluff as I can't see him having a strong range here.

      Confused on the river as some draws come in but only AK or 9x can call a big river bet right?

      If he is actually strong at any point earlier in the hand then he surely will bet bigger or re-raise me ott?

      Hi.

      Definitely firing this river. He would be in a really tough spot even with sets.

      1/2-2/3 pot should be sufficient and we should also valuebet such an amt with 9x.

      Thanks, I did fire 2/3rds and he did fold.

      But I wasn't sure why it worked!!!!

      Is it because any strong sets/2p will 3bet the turn, therefore his calling range on the turn is capped at 1-pair/fd type hands?

      I dont think thats the case. The river brings a four straight so even s
      With sets he would be really afraid of the board. You dont rep too much air here when you cr the turn and bet this river.
