      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      MP2 (Hero):
      $50.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, MP3 folds, CO calls $2.00, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) K, 5, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, CO calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($10.75) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, CO calls $7.00.

      River: ($24.75) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.50, Hero calls $8.50.

      Final Pot: $41.75.

      Villain is 19/5 calling station.

      I believe flop and turn are quite standard, but what about river? Bet/fold? And if you'd bet/fold how much would you bet?

      Cheers,

      I like the idea of blockbetting here, about 1/4 of the pot. Since he is passive, we can expect him to bluff very little but to call a lot of crap. Many hands improved on T&R, but we can still get value from Ax and maybe even worse with such a small bet, and when he raises we can safely fold.

      Yeah, against a calling station I'd rather bet river.

      He can still call us with Ax and if we bet small enough maybe he's even gonna look us up with something like 6 :heart: 6 :diamond: , who knows? :D

      Like my brother said, a lot of hands improved on T/R and I believe that when he bets the river, he has us beat a LOT because he checks back most of the hands we beat.

      Cheers!
