      Hi there,

      i am not really sure that i played this well...Villain was 47/12 over a very small sample (17 hands)... Was it ok to call his bet on the river or should i have folded because of the paired board and the possibility of a flush?
      What do you think?

      Cheers, prg09.

      i would have considered folding, thinking that he has made his trip Qs

      RAISE PREFLOP. From the CO with position on a limper, it's a mandatory raise for me with a hand like KJo that plays terribly multiway but great with initiative in a raised pot against a fish.

      As played flop and turn are fine, river is dicey. Since he's a unknown halfstack, there are some hands like JT he could be bluffing with or hands like Kx he could wrongly shove for value, calling is alright getting 2:1. Stats over this small sample would make us lean towards a fold because he seems like the type not to jam Kx/bluffs on the river and he's almost certainly peeling twice with Qx on flop/turn, but they're still unreliable. No big deal either way, just go with your guts on this one.

      Hope it helps.
