      opponent is pretty tight with 13% VPIP. i planned on drawing value since he was likely to be holding Q with a lower kicker and i can extract value on the river. or could i expect him to hold better?

      with 13% vpip, what Qx hands, that are in his range, do you beat?

      I would bet more on flop(0.60$) and turn(1,2$) then check river.

      Hi,

      Sounds fine, tho I don't really mind valuebetting the river as played. Just because the guy is 13% vpip doesn't tell us all that much. We don't have a pfr stat, we don't have the sample size. For we know he could still have tons of worse Qx hands in his range.

      If we had something like 13/11/1 over 300 hands instead, then I'd tend to agree that we're mostly up against 2 combos of KQs that we beat, 6 combos of AQ we tie with, a few combos of sets he's playing slow and a few random flushes he got odds to call with. Which makes the river valuebet a lot more sketchy, I'd prefer a check back there.


      Hope it helps.
