  • Thin value bet on river?

    It is $11 Phase tournament with 2 Day's (Phase 1 = Day 1 and Phase 2 = Day 2). I am playing Phase 1 where I need to survive 15 levels and it has 10mins blind level. My standard bet is 45% on every street when the board is not too scary.

    Hi adi,

    I think value betting this river is just too thin. We're asking a lot to get called by worse hands on this run out. The Jd is a crying call at best, and worse hands than this probably just can't call us, especially for 3600. Because we'd be targeting a fairly weak range on this board for thin value, more like 2200 would work better. But, to be clear, I think it's just too thin. I would prefer to check and call rather than bet/fold, I think we do better in the long run picking off bluffs.

    Oh and where you've put your question mark... fold imo.

      I don't think I can check-call more then 40% pot bet and I am sure if he had Bigger flush or full house he might make it big to extract more value. That's one more reason for the blocker river bet.
