      I'm unclear against what type of opponent to 2nd barel and against whom to check/fold on the turn. Villain is unknown but apparently loose pf.

      decent play on the flop.

      arguments can be made for turn, but all in all dont kick yourself too much about it

      as for the... fish...

      you only have 8 hands

      and dont rely on these numbers too much anyway

      Hey Tim64,

      after only 8 hands it's best to just play standard strategy as you need reliable stats to make any postflop decisions. Here I would just bet 2.75-3$ on the flop and shut down if I get called as K fits your range perfect and the boards is really dry.

      In general, against players with high WTS and low fold2c-bet you can more often shove turn or check/call it, depending on their bet versus missed c-bet. But for those stats you need a lot of hands.

      Regards,

      Thanks -that makes sense. These fish are so bad - calling with hands like K4o - that they're never around long enough for me to build any stats. :s_cry:
