  • Simple decision !

    It's $3.30 APPT ACOP Mega Giveaway Satellite Stage 2. 10mins blind level and 1500 starting stack. I don't know if I should just give up and not c-bet coz the preflop caller is a fish, he called my raise with 12BB stack which no good player does. And now his stack size is so awkward that if I c-bet and he moves all-in, I will have to donate him rest of the chips with a gut-shot PokerStars Hand #118493149746: Tournament #932413501, $3.00+$0.30 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level IV (50/100) - 2014/07/08 19:00:40 IST [2014/07/08 9:30:40 ET] Table '932413501 5' 9-max Seat #3 is the button Seat 1: toogoo88 (1475 in chips) Seat 2: TS0KE (3275 in chips) Seat 3: hpmp888 (4742 in chips) Seat 5: sodashuup (525 in chips) Seat 6: mr bean65 (1285 in chips) Seat 7: Afan45 (1565 in chips) Seat 8: ossii709 (1433 in chips) Seat 9: adikumar2010 (3450 in chips) sodashuup: posts small blind 50 mr bean65: posts big blind 100 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to adikumar2010 [ ] Afan45: folds ossii709: folds adikumar2010: raises 150 to 250 toogoo88: folds TS0KE: folds hpmp888: folds sodashuup: folds mr bean65: calls 150 *** FLOP *** [ ] mr bean65: checks adikumar2010: STATS :

    Hi adikumar2010! With AQs preflop, I'm definitely going to make a standard raise and with the opp playing 45% of hands, it doesn't surprise me that the opp calls. When the flop misses me and the opp checks, I'm absolutely going to check behind here. I have 10 outs, but can very easily be behind here, as there are plenty of ways for a player seeing 45% of flops to hit this board. Also, with the opp playing this many hands and not taking any aggressive action, it seems that the opp is a calling station and when up against a station, rule #1 is... don't bluff. The way to beat this type of a player is to value bet them to death with made hands and I currently don't have a made hand, so I don't want to bet. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
