      -----

      BU was 23/1/0 over 121 - a calling station with AF of 1, WTSD 25, W$SD 33.

      Preflop: standard OR.

      Flop: value bet.

      Turn: value bet again.

      River: on river I opted for a thin value bet again. I don't want to check as he never bluffs missed draws. So I opted for 1/2 pot value bet vs lower Ax. Easy fold when he shoves? I doubt I can ever call here.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Vs a calling station this hand is fine.

      Thin value on the river is good, including sizing. (Although it might not be profitable vs a regular). Also Tx is awkward in that calling station can easily show up with a T here, and you can't extract value from it any more, so you are targetting a thinner and overall weaker range on the river - it may be ok to reduce sizing even further.

      Vs river raise it's extremely unlikely a passive calling station is raising with anything other than a Tx

      Hi w34z3l

      How should my line change vs a regular? No thin value bet I guess? But should I c/c vs missed draws or just c/f? I guess this depends on sizing as well, right? I could c/c 1/2 pot bet and fold to 3/4+?

      It really depends on the regular of course, but there are certain lines you will consider that you won't consider against a reg. A reg is probably not paying off 2 streets with a Tx for example, and probably not paying off 3 streets with a worse ace.

      If regular is aggressive c/c turn + c/c river is an option to exploit regs who float alot. Bet turn then c/c river is also an option seeing as there are plenty of busted draws on this river and T reduces the combos of nut hands villain can hold. Vs passive regular c/f may be fine because he will check back draws and only bet Tx.
