      Good ol' limped potts. In the last days i got burned in one or two of them, so just wanted to be sure that it's ok to go on all three streets here...

      Hi,


      Well, in terms of absolute strength you have a very good hand certainly worth valuebetting 3 streets. Now in terms of relative strength and what hands can call a valuebet of yours on that river it's another story.

      Villain's range on the flop is like 22/3x/44-66/88-99/diamonds/45/65/64 maybe TT+/75/74/overcards that we clearly beat, and like 33/7x that we don't beat. On the turn the weakest of those hands like 22/3x might not call anymore, 88/diamonds beat us.

      On the river 99 beats us as well, random 54/65/64 gutshots won't call anymore without hopes of improving and with 3 diamonds out there it's a pretty damn tough call for any pair lower than 8x, but he can't really have floated too often with 8x/9x on the flop unless it was 9dXd exactly. Not to mention we don't beat 75/74 anymore since we all have 77798, and a fish might decide it's still worth check/raising which would result in us getting blown off a chop at random.

      So really, we better be sure we make a bet that is callable by stuff like 3x/44-66 or that villain can show up with TT+ there, because otherwise there is no use in betting. Against tricky/slowplayy guys, I don't think checking back is weak at all considering how hard it is to get paid off by worse.


      Hope it helps.
