      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, Q.
      4 folds, CO calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, CO calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) T, K, K (2 players)

      River: ($2.97) 9 (2 players)
      CO bets $2.85, Hero calls $2.85.

      Final Pot: $8.67.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, king high(9c Qh).
      CO shows a full-house, kings full of tens(Td Kc).

      CO wins with a full-house, kings full of tens(Td Kc).



      many hands beat me on the river. flush draws have completed, there could be a higher straight. any pockets have full house. any k9, kt , kj have me beat.

      with the bet size i need to be correct about 40% of the time which i dont think i am, and i would fold here.

      I don't see whats missed that hasn't given him at least a pair (and many NL5 players likely realise having a pair yet no showdown value) so I don't know why he would just randomly spaz out after calling two streets.

      Like you said there are so many hands that beat you and its very much <40% of time he is doing this with a hand you beat imo, easy fold.

      Hi,


      Like letmewinplz8 said (not in so many words), it's always important to compare villain's value range and villain's bluffing range for doing something like that on the river. And here while you can easily stuff all kinds of flushes and boats in his value range given the board, it's pretty damn hard to find hands he'd need to bluff at you with, nl5 players just aren't capable of turning Tx into a bluff like that, which makes it a pretty easy fold.


      Hope it helps.
