      Standard play on flop and turn, and on the river I didn't bet because I had only overpair and the pot was already kinda big so i was just following the rule "big pots for big hands", I called tho, because he didnt bet too hard, was this ok?

      PFR - fine

      Flop - slimy wet board. Gut str and flush draws. Bet could be a little bigger here - 40c to full pot. I like full pot to protect against someone who possibly has 13 outs (FD + gutshot).

      Turn - This card stinks as it makes a backdoor flush draw and completes a gutshot straight, while opening up more OESDs. Bet bigger again. Id be firing my second full-pot here.

      River - completes a nut str draw, though youd expect the only person drawing to it would be a nut (or holding KT spades). I think check-call is a reasonable line here for a very small bet. Check-fold if his bet gets too far past half a pot.

      That rule needs adjusting. It should be "big pots for when you are in front!" :)

      Make sure you put a note on players that do this as I believe anyone who often cold-calls trouble hands (AQ, KQ, KJ, AJ.. anything that can be TPGK but dominated by TPTK) is someone who you can consider aggressively stacking-off TPTK against in the correct situation (board is under their likely 2p range, eg A 7 6 2 9).

      KT spades would also be horribly played on this board by not raising flop...


      Check-fold if his bet gets too far past half a pot.
      Most people will bet far beyond half potsize if they decide to make a riverbluff. If you are going for check/call you should be willing to call more than only half a potsize bet.
