      River: (€1.52 - 30.40 bb) 4:spade: (2 Players)
      BB bets €0.75, Hero ???


      BB was 26/17/3 over 211. AG% - 26.

      Value bet/folding.

      Donk bet seems like a missed draw. Sets/2pairs would raise flop/turn.
      I'm behind Kx. However, I think that given the odds I can find a call vs busted draws.

      River: this is a call, assuming you think AQ is strong enough to valuebet twice. You do beat so many busted draws

      Flop and Turn: I think this is way too thin. I think that you can only go for 2 streets of value at the very most. I would suggest checking the Flop right away at lower limits - this is the best way to under-represent your hand and induce as many bluffs as possible.

      Hi mbml

      Thanks for pointing out the checking back option. I think my play is better suited for loose passive opponents who like to draw. I agree that checking back vs this particular opponent is better as he is capable of bluffing.

      My questions:
      1. We do fold on turn/river , right?
      2. Also, if a turn is 9/A and the guy bets both turn and river we fold as well?
      3. Finally, if the guy bets turn and the river is an A or 9 we still call, yes?

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      1. Yes that's right. We could still be ahead of some straight draws like AJ/JT but probably not ahead of enough worse hands to justify calling another bet. OF course if villain bet something like 1/5 pot then a call is possible.

      2. Ace gives you 2 pairs, you shouldn't fold. 9 is more of a fold.

      3. not too much difference between the A/9 coming on the Turn or River IMO, cos the K and Q were already on the Flop.
