      $0.20 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players[/b]

      BB: $29.20 (VPIP: 15.79, PFR: 15.79, 3Bet Preflop: 7.69, Hands: 41)
      Hero (UTG): $20.50
      MP: $9.75 (VPIP: 26.51, PFR: 22.89, 3Bet Preflop: 13.89, Hands: 84)
      CO: $22.15 (VPIP: 31.58, PFR: 26.32, 3Bet Preflop: 14.29, Hands: 19)
      BTN: $24.55 (VPIP: 23.21, PFR: 23.21, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 56)
      SB: $20.00 (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 22.22, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 36)

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.20

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.30) Hero has 2:diamond: A:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.60, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.30, 2 players) T:spade: 8:diamond: 9:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.78, BB raises to $2.20, Hero calls $1.42

      Turn: ($5.70, 2 players) 6:spade:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5.70, 2 players) 3:club:
      BB bets $2.85, Hero raises to $7.64

      so flop cbet is fine, and i'm not too happy vs the raise but i think im getting ok odds so i just make the call to hit.

      on the turn when he checks i made a huge mistake - imo this is almost always a failed checkraise bluff on the flop so i really should have bet the turn. when i checked back im essentially trying to get to SD with A2s which most likely isn't a great plan in this spot. yeah i might be ahead of his Kx :diamond: but it's really not a great plan.

      on the river i think its too optimistic to call here but since i feel like he's almost always weak given his line i decided to experiment with a small raise and make him fold his 55 or 44 that he might be turning into a bluff.

      what do you think?

      Hi Lewis,

      Yes, we should bet the turn there.

      But as played villain can also have some 2p/sets that were afraid of the 4 to a straight on the board and didn't want to get raised on the turn.

      So given you checked back I doubt he folds any of those on the river on that blank. The bluffs should fold.
