  • MM 30 FPP 3 Seats Gtd - Not extracting enough value?

    This is a hand from MicroMillions-016 Sat: 30 FPP NLHE, 3 Seats Gtd - Level II (15/30) that I am unsure if I played correctly to extract all the value I could.

    Villain 8 was loose (74/21/9) and I thought I could extract more value by calling the turn and raising the river.

    Hey IBNash

    I think you played the hand fine up until the check raise on the turn.
    Your sizing is too big. When you raise this much I think that most villains will only continue with 2 pair or better. If you check raised the turn to let's say 450 - 600 we may get villain to continue with a naked Qh or Jh which he thinks will be good and will then proceed to hand us the rest of his chips.

    Another option vs weak players would be to check raise the flop especially as villain over bet it. This way we can bet the the turn and get it all in on the river.

    Cheers, Chris.

      Hi Chris,

      I was unsure if check raising the turn to any amount would have resulted in him playing, I felt calling and raising the river would get me best value. I hit the 89% of pot button on the Turn, and going by your figures a standard cbet of around 55% was the sweet spot.

      Thank you!
