  • Overpair w/ Set on river

    Just wondering how you guys would play this differently? I overbet the river to try and make it look bluffy, which seemed to work this time. (villain had Ks)

    Hi birdayy,

    I think a big river bet is perfect. When the villain checks back the flop it looks like AK/AQ are a big part of their range, and when they call your turn bet AQ becomes more probable, or AA/KK that they checked back the flop to pot control. Since the J is not a scary card for them I would expect AQ, KK, AA to call a big bet without hesitation having taken this line. If the called the turn with AK just to see what you do, they're not likely to be calling even a small bet on the river, so go for big value against the strong 1 pair hands imo.

      Thanks Dave.

      Replicated my thoughts in a more concise way.

      I was a bit surprised he didn't cbet the flop, but I guess the slowplay cost him in the end.

      Goes to show to never slowplay in the micros.

        I'm not so sure about the turn bet (why bet close to pot, when the only hand that you're beating is AKhh?) but I really like a big overbet on the river. Your line would look so weird to villain that he'll call with almost all his one pair hands.
