      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has T:club: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, fold, fold

      Flop: ($1.55, 2 players) 4:heart: 3:diamond: 2:spade:
      CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00

      Turn: ($3.55, 2 players) A:club:
      CO checks, Hero bets $2.25, CO calls $2.25

      River: ($8.05, 2 players) 9:heart:
      CO checks, Hero bets $5.75, CO calls $5.75


      Turn: why not to try to fold better hands? Ace on the turn is so awful card for us but villain would be hard time for calling bets on the turn and river. It's the reason why I bet her. For bluff because TT imo wouldn't be good enough at sd.

      River: Owen Gaines in his book Hole Card Confessions recommends attack bell range with overbet. In this case I thought that I'm able to fold Ax with normal bet sizing but I was wrong. Villain took him whole timebank and finally after long time calls w/ AJo.
      Why not to jam riv?

      Hey UnknownJoseph,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop call is fine and on the turn we have a decision.

      We either go to showdown with our hand or try to make him fold better hands.

      If we want to make better hands fold we first have to identify them. What hands should we go after? JJ-KK, AT-AJ or even stronger (if he ever has stronger)? Given he checks turn as PFR he rarely has strong hands.

      Given your bet size I think that we should rarely expect Ax to fold and we are mostly going after JJ-KK which do require two streets of bets in most cases (unless you face a fit/fold guy).

      The other thing you want to ask yourself (for when you move up and play better players) would be "what are we trying to rep so we can get villain to fold a TP type hand?"
