      Hello!

      Stats:

      FoldVsFlopCb:80(5)
      WTSD:20, W$SD:38
      AF:3.1

      Preflop looks like loose a little, but there is a fish on the button, but I think its loose yes.
      As played, flop is a standard Cbet, I can bet more about 1.4$ this dh board.
      Turn Cbet/fold was good?If yes I can bet about 3.2-3.4$.
      On the river ch/f is good?
      If yes which hands can I play ch/call if I want to balancing my range against this player?
      If I play everythink ch/f he can always bluff.
      If I play ch/call with nothing on the river, the turn ch/c is better I think(I play like that flushes), and ch/rasie river wiht flushes, and ch/f with hands like this KJ.

      What do you think?

      Thanks!

      Hi bosiati,

      Preflop: even with a fish on the BTN this is pretty loose unless you have only nits at the table

      Postflop: What's the point of that bet on the turn? Are you getting value? If so, from what? Are you bluffing? If so, against what?

      Why are you "worried" about balancing versus a 14/11 at 20nl? Do you think he can pick up on your plays and exploit you?

      Ck/call implies that you think he has floats on that board on the flop. What floats can he have (or bluffs on the turn)?

      Thank you!
      Then turn check/fold is okay?

      Which players against I have to balancing, and which limits?

      Balancing implies that your opponent(s) can pick up on your plays and exploit you.

      So I would look at balancing against players that have shown some higher level of skill and players you play versus a LOT. I don't think either of those players can really be found at 20nl on pacific. Keep in mind that most regs on pacific play a nitty game meant to hit the board and go from there (given the amount of fish generally available). So I would say that on that site you don't need to worry about balancing until nl100+ (and even there it's questionable at best).
