      BB checks, Hero checks

      Villain is 39/5 with 29% WTSD and 1.4AF aprox 30% Aggression Frequency on Each Street. 1.4k hands. Now My Question Is This;

      Q) Given River Is Blank In the two Following Scenarios What do you play?

      a) Villain Bets. Do you Call?

      b) Villain Checks. Mega Easy Value Bet?

      Hi DaPhunk,

      I personally Barrel this on the Turn despite that he might have spiked a 3-outer.
      I think if you check here, you give him too much credit ánd you lose iniative ánd probably will be bluffed out on the River since he will make a bluffbet on the River.

      Regarding your question:
      A) I shove
      B) I shove as a vBet, 2 pair is good!

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi Gerv,

      I think you misinterpreted DaPhunk's question. I believe he meant that the Ace does NOT hit on the river.

      Yep I did :f_mad: ...

      So given river is 2 , I still vBet it if he checks and I call when he bets

      This because I don't see any reasons to slow down when a K comes

      Thanks Mbml,
      - Gerv

      I'm Checking For Bluff Induce and to balance my Check back range, I'm not planning on folding here. Hence my Question, Seeing if other people agree with me on the going broke thing.

      very bad spot for a check to balance, he can have so many draws and you are missing out some value.. 45,89 gutshots :spade: draw etc push turn
