This is a, wow the bb has nearly 7 stacks so must be a good player or just doesn't care?

I play my hand TT from the sb with a full stack and no reads against an unknown.

Good or bad but I was really worried betting the river.

Open for discussion >>big stacks don't care<<?

Hey Forrest,

this would make for a great example of the wasted pair theorem I wrote about recently

I like flop and turn bets because of the drawy texture. OTR I don't see much value in betting against an unknown since most people would probably fold 8x or smaller pairs by now and only call Kx. I would probably check and consider calling if he bets since his range would probably be polarized between either a strong king or busted draw then.

Hi Felix,

I did read your "wasted pair" blog.

Here I'm not seeing a bottom pair on the turn but see a non-diamond river - sick feeling a Q.

Also I have been trapped at 10NL by non-3bet players who sit on QQ or even KK. I can see their passive idea betting folds out worse and then can see if an Ace comes on the flop.

My game is not advanced enough to check the river and call a bet though. How do I know it's not xKd or xQd. As played just amazed at the show down.
