New to the table maybe 12 hands in, Rody does seem to bet when in a pot but again bare in mind how limited that read is



How do i get the max here?

It doesnt show but Rody bets 19cents

ty Effsea,

When do you spring the trap on turn or on the river?

Hi! Grade b, nice flop.

We wanna keep the opp in the pot as long as possible. You have absolute nuts here so if you raise on the flop or the turn, the opp might call but there is a possibility he might fold which we don't want. The opp is leading into you on the flop for slightly more than half pot, personally I would flat call and let him continue with his aggression. If the opp continues with his betting I'm only raising him on the river once he has committed as much chips to the pot as possible.

Nice hand

cheers.

Hi grade B.

Flat. Flat. Flat.

Let him barrel again if he is going to. Flat that if he does, and wait until the river to raise.

If he doesn't barrel, lead turn in whatever manner would fit your pattern to express "weakness". If you haven't yet shown down a weak line to this opp, then select whatever action that you intend to use on your weak leads in the future. This way if he does call, you will make your future weak actions appear "strong".

Pray he calls. If he doesn't, he probably didn't have enough to really be leading into you in the first place.

There really is no sense in letting a street of potential value go versus an opp you have zero info on, since you have no clue yet if he will lead on draws that might "catch up" to a 2nd best hand. He also has minimal info on you, so he has no clue what YOU may lead on; make him decide for a price and the "mistake" he can make will tend to at least cost him some money.

Hope it helps.

Flat call the flop...
Flat call the turn...
Raise the river, the depends on the holding you think he has... if it is someone who doesn't bluff he might have something good enough to call a raise.. Though an A on the turn or river might freeze the action... If he keeps betting with that too I would shove on the river...

Though I would check behind him if he checks the turn..... and river surprise :-)

The only issue I have with this Etienne, is that you lose a street of value where the villain might make a "mistake".

I do agree your hand is plenty strong enough to check behind on the turn (if the villain checks), but if you are more aggro on later hands in this spot, especially as a bluff (the only way a bluff would "work" is to bet), there is a chance the opp's will be able to read a lack of strength in your bet.

So for my best interests in later hands, I think I'd prefer to keep with a more consistent action pattern with this monster hand, just so they may make later mistakes against me.
