      Villian is 31/20.

      I had little over a potsized bet on the turn and I thought that if I bet he will probably only call with better hands and by checking I can squeeze some value out of smaller pocket pairs on the river with a smallish bet - hoping it looks like a bluff. But should I have bet turn anyway?

      Hi,


      Fine by me, the K is a really scary card for his range.

      If he's a bit fishy, that doesn't mean he'll fold all the time, just that he might fold to a big bet. So betting small enough not to force him to fold, and yet big enough to commit him to calling a river shove with anything, is a viable option. Like $1.3 or something like that. The only risk being, if he's a bit spazzy he can decided to jam over it for no reason, and we really hate to get jammed on on that card since he'll only do it with better hands if he's not spazzing out.


      Hope it helps.
