      Villain 14/7/2.0 on 46h sample size

      Called the flop cbet, cause i saw it as a standart cbet, which could be an A or K-high as well. Now the turn call could be wrong, but i asumed, that the T there just gave me 3 additional outs to continue...Now, is the river bet ok? I think i am ahead most of the time, and stuff like AK/KQ maybe AJ could call me...

      Hi,


      I'd check/raise the flop, because it's a standard c-bet. That means he has nothing very often, which means we can get the pot without improving by showing strength, and even if he ends up having something like Qx, we still have a lot of equity and fold equity on later streets, so it's a standard spot for us to fastplay our nut flushdraw + overcard even if it's only a draw for now.

      As played calling the turn is fine as long as you realize it's now very likely villain has Qx+ or another flushdraw after he bets twice biggish.

      As played I like the river donkbet but I might make it a bit smaller on the A river, it's scary to Qx hands even if people aren't consciously aware if it and if villain finds a fold with Qx our bet is meaningless.


      Hope it helps.
