      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:spade: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, SB calls 5 BB

      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: (36 BB, 2 players) T:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 25.2 BB


      SB is unknown.

      Flop: Plan was to check it down as I have a SD value and can bluff with other hands.

      Turn: since K is such a great card for my range, does not hit his range all that often, I decided to start bluffing as I think it its now more +EV than checking.

      Plan is to fire turn & river to fold out most of his pocket pairs. He might also peel turn w/ some of his Ax hands and fold river.

      Do you like? Tha nks

      Hi D,

      I prefer starting off with a cbet. He doesn't fold pairs to one bet but calls all worse A highs so overall you have nice equity against his calling range with 2 overs and a gutshot. Then on this turn I would bet again and shove any river, goal being to make him fold all pairs JJ or less.

      As played, betting turn and river should show a profit but I think you have less FE vs pairs than by tripleling.
