Turn: ($1.50, 2 players) Q:diamond:
CO checks, Hero bets $0.85, CO calls $0.85

River: ($3.20, 2 players) 5:club:
CO checks, Hero checks

villain is vitually unknown, ZERO hands at that point of time
so we flop top set n try to get value as well extract more from draws etc..

turn comes another diamond.. uh oh
villain X, so i bet to protect, and villain calls.
river comes the almighty 5

villain X again, and me being the nit that i am X back.

question is:
was the turn bet sizing ok?
shudda i have bet the river there?
and if i was re reraised and or shoved there, issit an easy fold or call?

after the villain BC the flop, was ranging villain on mid PP 66-JJ, maybe FDs?

so on the turn and river, watever draws had got ther and i really really didnt want to do another puke call post...

YET, so soon, anyway

anyways, GL all and please gimme your tots.

Hi wikked,

I would bet more on the turn, he bet/calls the flop so his range includes a lot of big pairs and a few flush draws mostly I think. This turn card takes away some flushes (AQd, KQd) and is going to lose some of the flopped overpairs (88-JJ), but KK+, AQ and single big diamonds will call a bigger bet with stacks this deep so make one for value here.

I would absolutely bet for value on the river. Are you worried about 66 specifically? What other 6's are in his range? I think as played he's going to have a big pair a lot here and be check-calling us, or busted Ad and just fold.

As it turns out you got super unlucky with him slow playing to your flop raise (which is terrible on his part but so common) and a diamond coming on the turn. If the turn was the Qc you may get check-raised and get his stack.

i was worried about combos with the FD and straight possibilities on the board.
