      villain is Dawarsaw
      playing 21/16/0 3bet in 134 hands
      1.3 AF, 1st raise of cbet (1/9)

      on turn i get pot odds of 23%, and even a nut range of 99, 33-66, 76s i have 21.8%. and surely there are some semi-bluffs/overpairs at least a small percentage of the time.

      as played on turn and river? seem fine??

      Hi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that your bet size can use some adjustments, especially on the turn. The bet seems rather small (less than 2/3) given the board texture so it may induce more from our opponents.

      The river is interesting because our hand definitely doesn't look strong and the A is a good scare card. We now beat some of the smaller pairs he may have turned into a bluff and beat other draws+pair like 56. So I think we may have a call on the river because we can also expect a few of his set combos to actually raise the flop and not the turn (thus his value range is very narrow).

      @Bogdan

      thanks for the reply!

      you are right in that we can discount some combos of sets, and my bet sizing leaves much to be desired and might induce. in retrospect, it seems that river might be a call, as i would think most value hands would just jam it in (however DaWarsaw might be targeting calls from what seems to be a weakish range by me).

      i have never seen him get out of line, so that is what made me fold river. i think your points are good in regards to advocating for a call, it's just DaWarsaw is such a nit from my sample size :f_confused:

      Is your overall sample size larger than the 130 hands that you linked initially?

      If it is not I would not put so much emphasis on such a small sample.
