      Hi,

      BU is a weak player, 27/16 over 150h, cold calls 20%, 3bet 3%

      Turn: Decided to x/r turn as hes gonna bet himself his Tx, Ax or flush and I am not getting much value from smaller pairs anyway.
      Also I want to pump as much money in the pot as possible with the nuts.

      River: What part of his range should I target with my betsizing, and how much would you bet ?

      Hey D,

      I'd start off by betting more like 5.50 or 6bb on the flop.

      Then your c/r on the turn can be about 45bb and all of a sudden you have a pot size shove on the river or super close to it.

      If you just bet 6bb on the flop, turn pot is about 20bb, he bets like 12-15bb, you make a solid raise and there you have it. As played, I would bet relatively big, you already look really polarised, his range should be quite inelastic. Not inelastic enough to ship it though, just too much of an overbet.probably 40-50bb is the sizing to go with.
