      I think my play up to the flop is according to the book here (correct me if I'm wrong, maybe I should have moved all-in there already?). But I wasn't sure what to do on the turn and river. Just move all-in directly? I played like this to try to induce him to think I was bluffing and hence get some more money from him.

      I'd have played like this: Call him on the flop, I think you already have the winning hand there, so Id have just called makiing him believe I dont have such a good hand, and wait that he goes all in by himself (they usually do in this limits :P ), if he doesnt then you bet 1/2 or 2/3 of the pot and see if he calls, again they usually do.

      As played on the flop, I think I would've make the same as you on the turn by checking, but on the river I'd probably would bet a little less, you scared him going all in :P . With a lower bet (like 0.30 or 0.40 I think) he'd probably have called, thus you'd have won more.

      Hello pokerplayboy,


      Flopplay is fine, you do not want to see a 4,5,8,9 or a Ten because of the straight possibilities

      I like the Turnplay as the 4 is either a blank or your MVP card but inducing a bluff here is okay and let your opponent catch up a card doesn't hurt.

      River: Standard shove well played!

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      By his flop play I believe he's on a draw, so I would push turn to get value out of him, because on the river you will not get any value if he doesn't hit. On the other hand, he will call turn, cause your remaining stack isn't that big and he will get good odds to call.

      Ok thanks guys. I understand there can be multiple ways of playing this :-) Could make sense though to bet on the turn instead of river as he's more likely to call the turn. Thanks.
