Played this hand today:



Villain was a major fish - 53/11 over 38 hands. However, they were also a calling station - they would often call down to the river from anything to the nuts, to bottom pair, to absolutely nothing - not even a draw. They almost never raised.

That being said, did I extract value from them with this play correctly? Or should I have been more cautious at some point?

Hi Christxof,

I think you played the hand very well.

This is exactly the right situation to raise your suited-connector. From late position so you have position against a loose calling station.

Definately like a C-Bet. And good card for a 2nd barrel.
River I think the sizing is still good you could make it a little more perhaps, since even a calling station might struggle to call 3 bets without a piece of something and with a piece of something it sounds like he's almost always calling any raise.

But overall very well played.
Andy
