      Hi everyone, i post this hand to know your thoughts.
      I don't know if this guy is an expert or a lucky monkey haha.

      The unique movement that i don't like about him is the OB in the turn, the rest is just perfect i think.
      F: I going to call him with any FD, Jx, OP and some T
      T: I think it is stupid to OB here due to i going to fold almost everything
      R: Easy jam after tacking this line i think

      Looks pretty good imo. I don't think villain would play AQ this way. Q9 is there of course but hey you have the second nuts and villain can have all sorts of sets and 2pair combos.
      I would play this the same way.

      Seems fine played as well, but it’s suspicious he’s betting so big on every street.
      Further I recommend removing the outcome of the hand next time or put it in a spoiler. It could influence the feedback what you get.

      Cheers,

      You would have to be a fortune teller to tell the bb in a blind war has 9Q there

      Yea sure, i just wanna know what do you think about his line. It looks pretty interesting to me. Of course i'm going to stack myself off having second nuts.

      Thanks for the advice SDK1987, i will do it next time :f_drink:

      About his line: I think betting slightly less than a pot would keep your range wider and he would still have a pot size bet left OTR, so maybe his sizings are a bit big.

      He could potbet also sets for protection (evend donkbet them not to allow free turn if you would check flop), therefore you beat sets and unprobable AQ and Q9 beats you, I would also call on rainbow board.

      i agree that turn sizing should be smaller since he can pot shove river anyways. if u were deeper than i would like OB way more cause u will often have pair plus a draw in those spots and u are never folding even versus overbet. At least regs never fold at those limits so if he know how to exploit and get max value than over bet is quite good here.

      Thanks for the different points of view, i will keep posting some interesting hands.

      @confidant91
      I totally agree with you, we play each other just 13 hands, but i think that i he supposed that i'm a reg, your explanation have complete sense. And if he thinks i'm a fish, just bet big for value, not need to think too much.

      What about raise turn? Many of river cards will stop the action and maybe is more value in protection than bluffcatching OTR.

      It is pretty difficult to know what to do on the turn i think, i mean i have just 2 options, but i don't know my opponent.

      If he is an agressive maniac whale wich loves to bet/raise but fold a lot when you raise him, probably i feel quite stupid if i raise turn and he fold. And if he is just a really aggro reg, probably fold all his draws, TPTK and OverPairs with my raise on the turn.

      But now i think, if he have a set (he clearly represent it) is going to call my raise and i protect my equity against a potential full house or poker OTR than he is going to hit some like 20% of the times, not much imo.

      I don't know, what you all think about it?

      Raise flop, apparently he's happy with his hand. Don't think the nuts would donk big here.
