    Bad river bluff, imo. Its a standard river call for villain.

      Fold when the action reaches you first time, and then second time as well, calling a 3bet with 42s is just silly without reads.

      Fold flop.

      Well played on the turn though I think we can sometimes open fold

      Fold to bet on the river but if you are going to try and put pressure on him by raising him then I think you have to go a lot bigger.

      Just fold at every opportunity given.

          Hey GL, back in the day (WAY back!! ) I used to play a lot of the same hands you do - because it's so much fun to win big pots, and no one ever expects anyone to play hands like 26s ... for just reason, I suppose And folding's not so much fun - unfortunately it does seem to lead to more $ in the net Hopefully you'll find a nice balance of action and fun, and stuff that works for you ... GL, GL!! umbup:

              Hi NaturoSasuki!

              Bluffing at 2NL doesn't make the best strategy against most players since they just don't fold often enough. This is an easy fold preflop. The 3b will assuredly be a better hand than yours. So the only way we can profitably call the bet is if we have a strong read allowing us to exploit the villain postflop. You don't have that, so fold to the 3b. Note: be careful about putting the villain on exactly one hand. This is not the best way to range an opponent and will lead you to bad decisions more times than not.

              Now, you have absolutely nothing and we know the villain has a decent hand. The only way you are going to win this hand is by getting the villain to fold. Slowplaying does the exact opposite. It allows the villain to see the next card for free if they choose. You can bluff rep an A in this spot, but then you will need to raise the flop, bet the turn and probably bet again on the river. With 3 streets of bluff, you might get QQ, KK and weaker Ax hands to fold. However, this becomes a very expensive game compared to a low risk - high reward value only strategy.

              GL and have fun at the tables!

                Bluffing at 2NL is not necessary since most players playing the board and will simply not fold + I am even not sure if this is a good bluff since he needs to call $0.5c into $2.5 pot.
