      Villain is 33/25/NA/12.

      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      4 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      CO ($37.68)
      BTN ($53.30)
      SB ($58.10)
      Hero (BB) ($50.00)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 4 players) Hero is BB 5:club: 7:club:
      2 folds, SB raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1

      Flop: Q:club: 4:heart: J:club: ($3, 2 players)
      SB bets $3, Hero calls $3

      Turn: T:diamond: ($9, 2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $6, SB calls $6

      There I decided to semi-bluff with my FD, because I have no SD-value and making him to fold any non-pair hand would a huge win...

      River: 5:heart: ($21, 2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $20

      After he called me on the turn, I put him on some kind of a weak pair (maybe pair + straight draw) and decided to make him fold it.

      I think that if he had a strong hand (2pair+), he would bet or c/r turn for protection against FD/SD, so after he c/c turn and checks river - I think there are good chances for my bluff to succeed.

      Thank you in advance for your comments on my thoughts!

      Your stats?

      And I don't really understand what you are trying to represent here, if you flopped a set than you would surely raise because of the fd board, and if you had AK or TT you would raise PF for sure innit. Or do you want to make it look like 2 pair?

      And also the river bet is a tell for a thinking player unless you do it with quality hands too. If you got a set or 2 pair than you would surely bet 50-70% as you did on turn.

      This goes if you want to make him fold A TP.


      You also should take into consideration your image, his image and how weak he is.
      I have no Idea how NL50 Plays and if players read boards superbly and are able to really narrow ranges. IF it is like NL25 and people simply fold TP to strong bets than ignore everything I said.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I'd also prefer to 3bet.

      As played
      Flop: I'd raise him here.
      Turn: Check behind.
      River: Checking behind.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      if he calls the flop he is doing it with intention of hitting the flush AND to fire a turn if checked (floating with draw)

      This. You would often float with air against villain that likes to c/bet and shuts down at turn a lot (Many 30/24 villains), and the FD is a nice bonus.

      The only questionable part here is the river. Can anyone correct me if my thinking process 2 posts above is wrong?
