  • Getting fancy without need? Repping the A on river

    I am in doubt about this hand, should I have bet the turn instead of getting the free card with the draw? With the Ace I have a good spot because it makes sense to bet with the range villain would be putting me on? How about the bet sizes?

    As, played is good to me! I would check OTT. Betting OTT won't accomplish anything as the villain most likely has a weak Kx or underpair like TT-QQ. I think they'll call your bet OTT. I like betting the river here to make TT-QQ and weak Kx to fold.

      Pre I would mostly fold and only call some of the higher pairs, 55 seems a little too weak here against an unknown's 3-bet from the blinds vs CO.

      Flop I would not bet as it always seems suspicious when people dont bet the best of cbet boards to me He may also plan to check/call with midpairs a lot here which means you need to go into barrel mode without much equity if you want to succeed making him fold.

      That being said I would keep on firing against his midpairs with our picked up equity now. Riverbluff seems fine as his range looks exactly like TT-QQ type hands.
