      read: massive multi-tabler

      I didn't see much in such villain's range besides JJ/TT, maybe 99/AQs. I don't really think these NL50 nitty massive multi-tablers can adapt to the diferent ranges in a squeeze spot.
      Flop continuation bet really small, as I didn't see many hands that i beat that would call me.
      On the river I didn't see any hands that I beat, but I called anyways.:f_confused:

      Any other different way to play this hand?

      Final Pot: $57.

      This line looks like a PP to me, don't think he would play Ax or nice broadway hands like this. So I think the hand is good, but I would have made the flopbet a bit bigger. Checking turn for potcontrol/bluffinduce on the river looks fine, so I also call the river here.

      calling river bet is standard if you check turn.

      Anyway, if you know he is capable of flatting there with hands like KQ/KJ, you should be aiming for three streets of value to get max value from those hands. If he stacks you with his set, then its really too bad cause he cannot play those hands profitably if he tries to set mine against you.

      Of course if you think he will never flat KQ/KJ in this spot and will never call 3 streets with a weaker hand like QQ/JJ, then of course going for two streets is definitely the better option

      I think he can also have there KQ if he just c/c flop, even passive players would c/r with set a lot of times, so I´d would go 3 streets of value b/c turn 13$ and shove river for value
