      I think people normally post max 2 hands per post. I will still reply though. Also you should remove results from your Hand History's.

      1) I check back turn. The villain in turn has an excellent stacksize for this play and no bad cards can come for you, you can widen his calling range and even get him to make a spewy bluff against you trying to take the pot down.

      I am trying to get him All-In here, If he doesn't bet I shove.

      2) Yes. I would make it relatively small so that he's not TOO scared like 1/3rd or 1/4 potsize or something.

      3) due to the likelyhood of Two-Pairs, Flushes and straights on this board and it being a 3-way pot, I play turn+river the same way.

      4) I fold preflop because we are going to be out of position in the hand which will make it tricky. Its very hard to play profitably OOP.

      5) Yes, his range is just too strong too often for you to call against. He is now protecting his Ax type hands this way, sometimes KK in the same way and his turned flushes too. He's just not bluffing enough to make a call worthwhile.

      Hi,


      Just post one hand per thread unless they're related somehow, otherwise it's a pain to get through.

      1. Fine by me, all the pair+draw hands likely won't fold to a turn shove but we have guarantee that they'll bluff on blank rivers, so I'd err on the side of just valuebetting before they whiff or the board gets scarier.

      2. I agree with DaPhunk's answer.

      3. Same.

      4. Fold preflop, it's not profitable out of position to play that hand, it's way too low.

      As played I'd check the turn, likely check/call unless he's never bluffing. When he raises frankly I doubt we're ever ahead, I don't mind calling with the flushdraw but I could perfectly see folding being the best play.

      As played it's tough on the river, either he bluff-raised the turn and followed through or he has a hand that trumps yours, so you're bluff-catching. I'd fold unless I have reasons to believe villain is overall bluffy or would always c-bet Ax.

      5. Fine by me. I might c-bet the flop a bit smaller or even check it back if he's bluffy or very tight.


      Hope it helps.
