  • 25NL Zoom River Raised

    Villain's a reg, 22/15, AF: 1.9 over 497 hands. Flop FCB: 45%(22), Turn FCB: 14%(7), River FCB: 33%(3), River raise Cbet: 33%(3). I understand that after we bet 3 streets and get raised, we're almost never good unless we hold the nuts. Wonder to how much an extent this applies? What should we do OTR?

    Your perceived range should look very strong here since you barrel away on a 4-straight/paired board. Since you block 5x combos there aren't too many straights in villains riverrange anyway that you could hope to be splitting against.

    When he calls you down and shoves river he could of course potentially be turning a pair or a busted FD into a bluff and hope to make you fold a bigger overpair, but I doubt it since some of his flushdraws/combodraws will sometimes raise flop. However, the same might be true for sets and 2 pair - so it is kind of tough for him to get to the river with fullhouses unless he has been slowplaying a big hand from the flop.

    Still, without any specific reads that he is capable of turning a made hand into a bluff here I would go with the assumption that people are more likely to slowplay huge hands than to bluffraise river and fold until I pick up more reads.

      Thanks Felix! That assumption certainly held true for this hand. He slowplayed 66, I gotta learn to find my Fold BTN.
