    How do we play the river when we hit our draw here?

  • #2
    I don't min bet-folding the river. That being said I would probably bet the turn or check-raise. Check-call is fine given our equity but there may be better options available. Its hard to get river value when we bet- out after check-calling. How could we be bluffing? It is easier to get value if we go bet-bet-bet. I would probably fold to a turn raise if I bet myself, but it depends a lot on the size. umbup:

      I thought that betting a paired turn was bad? Even with a gutter and a flush draw, would you bet a blank turn also then with a flush draw?

      Like AKss on Js 6h 9s 2c

        Yeah I would Mike, I think that's a spot where real equity is high enough to bet.

        Betting is often about real equity + fold equity. When one is high enough you can bet no matter where the second one is at.
