      Hello,

      villain limped so seems to be passive, so he may not play a flushdraw agressively. Is it too weak to fold my straight?

      PokerStars - €0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 110 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 5:heart: 4:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 0.6 BB, Hero checks

      Flop: (2 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond: A:spade: 2:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (2 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      SB bets 6.4 BB, Hero calls 6.4 BB

      River: (14.8 BB, 2 players) 9:spade:
      SB bets 15.6 BB, fold

      SB wins 14.2 BB

      Hi.

      As played this is a snap call. How can you fold a straight here? That's so weak

      1. He could very easily value bet worse hands like 33 or A3
      2. He could be bluffing
      3. Vs a pot size bet on the River you only need to win 33% of the time

      This makes it an easy call.

      But anyway I would prefer just betting the Flop immediately to take the pot down - You do have a gutshot to the straight which is always nice to have when you want to bluff. His range is probably going to be super wide here and he doesn't necessarily connect too often with this flop.

      Thanks.
