  • 2nl 6max zoom: Huge overbet on river

    Disliked this hand also, was planning to call a reasonable river bet, or bet if checked to. What does the villain have here? I was thinking QJ or JJ I think I should have raised on the flop here, but other than that I think I played the hand fine.

    Hi Craig,

    His line looks strong, 3 streets and a big bet on the river is almost always value (unless you have reads to the contrary). Value hands here are probably KQ+. Of those, you are only beating KQ specifically (and not sure he would even bomb the river this big with only KQ tbh). You're tied with AQ, losing to QJ, JJ, QQ, KK, AA, and any random preflop steal that contains a 5. Over all, I think this is a fairly clear fold on the river without reads.

    Also don't like raising the flop much unless the guy is a known super loose caller, just let him continue to bluff when you're ahead and use your position... you can bet for value if he checks, and let him bet worse for you when you're ahead... and limit your losses when you're losing in the process.
