      Villian is 28/11 over 105 hands and has 43% W$SD when bet/raise on flop over 7 hands and 0% W$SD when call on flop over 4 hands. My check on turn is because villan had been calling my c-bets quite light and I wanted to represent giving up. He also liked to semi-bluff a lot so I'm not putting him on clubs a lot. But what do I do on river (I called and he had KJ) but when he shoves i don't know if I can ever give him credit for trips?

      Hi,


      I'd bet the turn again even if i'm not afraid of spades, the way you beat microstakes is by making good valuebets in every spot you can, especially against bad players whose most common mistake is calling too often. I'm going for 3 streets there with AJ on pretty much any cards, especially if i can partially take spades out of his range because he didn't raise the flop.

      As played his line makes no sense whatsoever, especially if he rarely has spades because then he can't show up with a busted draw. That being said it's easier for him to have worse 2 pairs than a set, so i'd also end up calling mainly because he's bad and it's hard for him to have hands that beat mine.


      Hope it helps.
