      Not really. K is a good card to rep. If they're never folding you have a valuebetpush with AJ and if they fear the K you have enough FE and they fold 50 or 60% this is good to make the push +ev.

      Villains who fold say 30 to 40% might be the worst people to cbet here as your so often getting it in against any Pair or maybe AQ. You are then also not getting the right FE to push also.

      Anyway, I think I shove my reduced stack preflop. MP3 is a reasonable spot to shove 15BB with only 4 people left to act in my book.

      Hey Tim64,

      I would as well prefer to shove preflop with 15BBs as you will most likely have to play the hand OOP postflop and you will be commited to shove as c-bet.

      As played, easy shove against this 60/10 fish. His range is so wide that you're push is ++EV. Specially with such a nice paired board with 1 high card.

      Regards,

      Hi Burek,

      Could you briefly explain why this board is particularly good to cbet ("Specially with such a nice paired board with 1 high card.")?

      Is it because the paired board makes it even less likely that villain hit (and we know that his range - 60% - means most of the time he won't have a pp here)?

      Paired boards and boards with 1high cards/2 low cards are best to c-bet as you can nicely represent the K in this particular case and it's very unlikely opponent has hit the board due to paired board.

      So, unless he's got a K or 6 he will have to fold and with so wide range he will have to fold a lot.
