      VpIp/PR/AFq
      Villain is 13/9/67

      My plan was to check/call for bluff induce if he is on busted draw or if he decides to bet pairs like 88+, is that ok or I should value bet river against random pairs.

      But now when I take a look at his stats again, I don't think that I could be ahead on the river if he bets, is that wright? I also don't think that he would call another bet considering my stats, 17/10/45, is this wright? Am I to tight for this level?

      Hi,


      Looking at it from the begining, I think villain is tight enough that most of his range preflop for calling you will consist of pocket pairs well as good broadways. So since I don't put him on many hands that can actually have 7x or a draw on that flop (not to mention he might raise a flushdraw because he'll have big cards with it), I think his range on the rivered is weighted toward 88-JJ more than busted draws and boats.

      And since I don't expect anybody at nl10 to think real hard about folding 88-JJ on the river when the draws missed, I think this is still a valuebet by default. I wouldn't go higher than $3-$3.5 tho, just to make sure we don't make those hands fold, because if we do, then we're just throwing away money.


      Hope it helps.
