      MP2 bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00.

      Final Pot: $16.63.


      Flop pot call is bad, especially when the board is paired, but figured that he wouldn't pot it with a made boat, more likely just an ace or trips that would pay me off, since he's a loose station ... on the turn I get exact odds for calling w/ my FD - 4:1 ... but the river card is a sucky one, especially considering the 7:1 pot odds I'm getting, supergay situation ...

      A crying pot odds must call hoping he had a busted FD as well or a smaller pocket that he went nuts with? :f_p:

      Villain is 55/3/1.5AF over 62 hands

      Hello StaticMoth,

      Whats up with the weird raise size pre-flop? Just make it 5BB and you will extract more value when you hit your hand. I would rather isolate strong over cards against this villain because he is going to have a lot of weak hands in his range and you can easily get dominated a lot of the time if you are not careful.

      When he leads this flop he can have many types of hands. These can include an Ace, a ten, flush draws, pocket pairs and also complete air. I don't see any reason to raise because you are just re-isolating yourself against better hands such as trips, full houses, and bigger flushes. I think calling the flop is ok but you can also fold sometimes.

      On the turn even though he bets small I think you have bad reverse implied odds and I think he can be betting boats here and also betting flush draws because you are unlikely to come over the top on the turn so he is setting a cheap price to draw.

      On the river I don't think I ever like my position but I am never folding given the pot odds and that he can defiantly have a bluff in his range some of the time.

      Kind Regards,

      Toby

      since he bet so small on the turn you can consider raising turn and then betting big river if you miss, since I think he is very often either bluffing there or doesn´t have very strong hand
      I´d also call river since you beat all the busted draws
