      Hey DaPhunk,

      great idea for your own quiz! :f_thumbsup:

      Let me give it a try... :)

      Scenario 1:

      B/C therefore hero calls. I don't see what does he raise river on a complete blank with, maybe a slowplayed straight, but his river AF is too high imo even after only 329 hands.

      Scenario 2:

      Standard b/f imo.

      Scenario 3:

      B/f like scenario 2. Draw completes.

      Scenario 4 & 5:

      B/c of course, we have a full house! :D

      Btw, why was turn a misclick, what did you plan to do? :f_confused:

      Regards,

      I wanted to raise to $6.50 of course ;)

      Heres how I play, I think :f_p: ;

      1) Kind of an annoying scenario, I think its borderline because of his monstrous river AF, but still I put him on FH, 7x, 89 and only occasionally AJ here so I B/F it. Its a dangerous board and he can't presume to have much FE with us only having a small amount left to call.

      This is the one I had the hardest time deciding on. I'm still open to debate if someone wants to try and change my decision on it!

      2)+3) Classic B/F Scenarios.

      4) Interesting, but because the T is a :heart: I B/C. I think he still often has a Tx or 7x in this spot though.

      5) Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy B/C. only 7T or 7J beat us and those are hella unlikely :D

      Oh... :)

      About 1), I don't know what to put villain here on, also because his c/r is 30% on the turn, so I would say he will raise turn with made hand right there, I don't think he would slow play flop and turn. Nevertheless, I think folding would be safer and more reasonable option, but I'm a little bit of showdown monkey myself, so therefore I'd call. :f_grin:

      Is it is possible that he plays his Really good hands like this and only C/Raises TPTK or lower on turn? It could be a reason for his large AF on river. Slowplay what he thinks of as a boat on turn also and get Aggressive on River if he thinks he has the nuts, otherwise lay it down.

      I didn't get AF wrong did I? Its the ratio between just calling and raising it up right? I.e. the higher it is the more he raises or bets rather than just playing it more passively and C/Cing or w/e. (Guess i have to read up on stats again)

      I think you got AF right, it's raises vs checks/calls.

      I believe it surely is possible for him to even slowplay monsters till the river. Now that I rethink it, c/raises on the turn could also be bluffs/semi bluffs and he doesn't play strong hands that way, because he wants value. ...but that's where my showdown monkey comes into play, hehe. I would call and make a note probably. Tbh, imo he has a monster on the river or a pure bluff, he doesn't represent anything else from what I can tell.
