      Preflop is good.

      Flop size is fine.

      I take a free card on the turn. Don't see anything better folding, and his play is just so weird.

      River good obv.

      Thanks,

      and if we got c/r, are we are shipping in or just calling to hit flush or at least a pair?

      Yeah I'm just shipping it. Your going to be at around 40% vs calling his range at the very worst. A lot of the time he will c/r and fold to shove. Or c/r a draw and think he is getting pot odds with Tc9c or KcTc or something.

      Hi,


      What johnbeattie85 said :)

      Worth considering in the same spot on the flop against more normal opponent (read: against a bigger 3bet / check flop line that is less likely to be slowplayed nuts and more likely to be a tag giving up) would be checking back that flop. If he has nothing you can take it away on the turn all the same, if you both hit something he might valueown himself into you, if you hit the flush he'll never believe you for it. Probably a bit too fancy for nl4, but it's food for thoughts.


      Hope it helps.
