  • NL2 6max, KQo , what would you do on turn and river ?

    i believe i had correct play until turn betting street, would you agree with that, also what would you do on turn and river if continued on turn. villain was new to table, had 22/22 stats in 18 hands so we dont have any reliable read. edit: i will say what villain had after the evaluation. but i dont want it to be result oriented for now.

    PF: Standard.
    OTF: Good sizing.. could make it 1 more BB bet about 0.10
    OTT: I would bet 1/2 - 3/4 pot... PSB here is too big! When they XR OTT, I might actually look at folding our hand.
    OTR: I don't think I would call this. This looks way to much like QJ or a smaller set that has a full house.

    *NOTE* OTT: I could see the villain maybe semi bluffing the turn with KT, Ax of hearts to setup a river shove. BUT YOU HAVE THE K of HEARTS so he doesn't have KT of hearts...

      yes that what villain exactly had, QJ =/ looking back at the hand now, i should've just folded to XR OTT cause it shows serious strenght.

      i also called that river i dont know why, probably i was on tilt/frustration from some earlier hand.

        I think you can call the XR OTT if you sized your bet smaller. Let's say you went 1/2 pot, then you're able to call a XR here because they could be semi bluffing.

        OTR: easy fold.

          Bet-fold the turn. Villain is almost never check-raising QT or worse. Top pair is no good here.

            yes calling or folding turn both looks acceptable play, but that river was definitely fold.

              With your bet sizing... Calling OTT is pretty thin. Note that if you ran this hand in a scenario analyzer, the J OTT is actually the worst card for your hand.

                Hi Luni,

                Preflop and flop are fine, but I really don't see how many worse hands are calling us on the turn, especially for a huge sizing. What are you targeting? AQ/QJ beat us, as does 66/22. QT- would be nice but if we are stretching value out of weak Q's they need to hold a bunch of those first of all, and a smaller sizing would be better to get called by those. So we're basically targeting flush draws, of which there would seem to be relatively few in his range. So either size the turn bet smaller, or check the turn back, planning to call a river bet, or bet for value there if he checks again. Our hand is likely only worth 2 streets of value anyway.

                As played, I think folding to the c/r is prudent... Baluga theorem ftw. Especially when he's c/r our very large sizing.
