  • 25NL 6Max Zoom - AK extracting value

    Villain was 25/18 (57 hands) - no real reads. I wasn't sure how best to extract value once I hit my K OTT. I felt that I could likely only get at most one more street of value from 88-QQ. I decided to check back the turn and try to get him to bet the river with his pocket pairs. Or I felt that he might check/call the river if nothing else particularly scary turned up. However I did give a free card for him to catch up, particularly if he was on a heart draw.

    Hey spand,

    I think you should definitely bet this turn for halfpot like you did OTF. There are heart draws and medium pairs that may call you a large percentage of the time plus the card is definitely one that you might be semibluffing/bluffing so that's something most villains will be afraid of in that turn spot. You might even get looked up for 3 streets by a nonbelieving 2nd pair when the river is a good one for you (nonheart, nonovercard, boardpair for instance).

    Although it is viable to be playing bet/check/bet it does look less bluffy to people I feel.
