  • 2NL - AA's hit a set

    Villain - 65/5/2.25 Has villain just sucked out here? Is the bet sizing ok? I was aiming to set the river up for the shove. Was it the right move when the possible flush and straight complete?

    I think you played it fine. The guy was an idiot for calling flop and turn. Flop is ridiculously loose, turn still bad, of course he has to then call river when his miracle run out continued.

        Well its your fault for letting him get there really. If you played your Aces more aggressively, he would have never been it after the flop. That's my opinion.

          I think the bet sizing was fine. The villain made mistakes calling pre-flop, on the flop, and on the turn.

            Ahh, let me add to my other response...

            Well, it's a pretty bad river card. It's bad because it completes a lot of draws, yes, but also bad because it might make the guy not want to play for the rest of his stack if he has worse than you. If the guy is a known aggro bluffer type then you could check it to him on the river and let him stack off and call. If he is a passive player then he is probably just checking back tons of hands you are beating that he might call with like 2 pairs, etc. The 65/5 says that he is pretty passive, but the 2.25 AF isn't super passive post-flop.

            I really don't know what the best thing to do on the river is. I don't think I could check/fold myself. Maybe I should be able to. It seems like he has too little left in his stack since we have top set. I guess I like the river shove because I think he is checking back with a lot of hands that he will call with that we are beating (I think he will call because he is a fish, not because I think it's right), and I know I can't check/fold anyways. Heh ...

              You are suggesting a type of aggression that gets everybody out of the hand? You will never get any value out of your hands. This is just bad advice.

              OP: I agree with most posters here, nothing much you could've done differently. Especially since villain is willing to call a near-pot bet with an inside straight draw.

                +1 for this. More aggression (overbetting the pot) will cost you value.
