  • 5NL 6-Max: Tough river decision AKs

    Hello all!

    I am questioning myself if I made the right decision on the river.
    I didn't have much information about the player I played, because I had never played against him and I just started to play on the table. I didn't put him on a flush, because he wouldn't have called on the turn.

    Every advice is welcome!

    How can you make this statement?

    This line is going to be Qx+ quite often, most players would check/call again with Kx. So either he's got trips, a boat, or a flush quite a bit, and is sometimes bluffing with a hand like JT. He's not bluffing nearly close enough to the 30% of the time we need to have the best hand to break even calling though, so I think this is a fold personally.

      Thank you for answering! I should have folded it, but it's a difficult fold for me personally. I have to work on my capability to fold hands like this. Thank you very much!

        It's difficult to fold "good" hands, but the key is to be ranging the opponents and making the best decisions we can with our relative hand strength... we don't believe he would play Kx this way (which without reads I'd guess he would not), then we are basically only beating bluffs since his value betting range is trips, flushes, and boats. It's probably not fair to say he's never, ever bluffing the flush card with a busted straight draw, or even taking a strange line with Kx sometimes, but the price here is clearly defined, our break even point on a call is 30% so is he bluffing or such this often? Not likely close.
