      If you push turn Villain has to call $13.80 for his share of like a $42 pot. He's surely now calling 95% of the hands he bet turn with AND we get calls out of FD's he may give up on river So I make this play thinking you get more value out of it.

      Right? Anyone disagree and think he'll bet river again but fold to a Turn push?

      I don't think it would make much difference, but maybe there is a really slight chance he would fold on the turn so maybe that was the safest way to play it since the last card could even improve his hand on the offchance that turn bet was a pure bluff.

      Edit: It's also true that he could desist after not hitting nothing on the river so probably your point is more valid Daphunk.

      Hey Tim64,

      I would only reraise higher on the flop, maybe 7 or 8$ as board is very draw heavy.

      On the turn there's no need to rush when you hit a full house, so I like the call, besides we still have almost potsize left on the turn and this can sometimes scare opponent away and if we call pot will be more than big enough on the river to get all our money in.

      River is easy.
