      I actually screwed up and posted these in the wrong section (i was looking at a post here). So if you can plz move them to the right one ^^










      Since these hands fall in the same category ill just post them together
      Its situations where my hand is worth crap and i m only able to win through bluffing. Taking in mind that it has to work in a minority of cases to be +EV.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , A:diamond:

      Final Pot: $69.50


      At this point i was thinking he might bluff me out of the hand if i dont act on the river , plus i might be able to take the split pot for myself.

      Ace is a potential scare card and theyve checked twice to me.

      There is really absolutely no hand that i can beat here. Should i take a stab?
      Also , is it worth firing a 2nd barrel on the turn with gutshot and FD?

      This smells like floating from miles away. Should i fire again on turn ?
      At the point i was even thinking of raising him but i decided im not crazy enough.

      A and K should look scary for him if he called with a queen. Of course i am screwed if he called with an FD.

      Hand 1) I just check/fold here because nearly every :spade: beats me.

      Hand 2) nice hand! That's exactly why you should bet here.

      Hand 3) You should definitely bet the turn here since you have a double-belly-buster draw and a FD (every 4 and every 7 brings you a straight, every :diamond: brings you a flush)

      Hand 4) If your opponent likes to float you, fire a second barrel. This board is great for diring a second barrel because it is paired and it is very unlikely that your opponent hit something.

      Hand 5) nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!
