      Raising flop? He shows strength donking into 3 opponent, but sizing is really weird on such a drawy board...
      As played, what do you think about bluffing river with such a small sizing? I dont think he would fold any pair, so I only target his busted A:hX/K:hX hands, which gave up on the river, but still beat me.

      Hey D,

      I think flop can go either way but I favour raising the small bets with most of my continuing hands.

      On the river, you can probably bet even smaller if you purely target busted draws with better showdown value because there are NOT that many imo. I would say it's marginal to bet here to make him fold that given his whole range full of pairs.

      I know this guy looks tight but is useful to know if V 3b JJ vs CO:)
      As played I like it,don't think that this guy will c/s there with busted FD...NH ,I like the sizing...if V has TP or sest ...what can I say,u have a great read on his tendencies:)


      EDIT: c/r stat??? if it.s BIG V never has a strong hand here,

      yeah not that many busted FDs in his range and you are blocking his OESD combos.

      I think hes gonna have Tx a lot, maybe 87s (which might call your riv bet) and some busted heart broadways and AXhh combos, few QJ
