Hi, villain is playing 23/19/6, fold to steal 100% (6/6) and AF 3. Over just 48 hands.
How did I play this hand ?
His river bet is strong, but he coudkldo this with worst hands, especially in a blind vs blind battle. The river is a clear check fold ?



thanks

I think you can, min raise turn wreaks of strength (Baluga?). We have a pair, what hands can he raise on this dry of a board that we're ahead of? (ironically the texture of the board would make me even more inclined to fold since he so rarely has a draw). Villain has 25 bucks in stack so is likely not a fish, do you think he's raising the turn with a9s/TT for value? I doubt it. edit: JJ 3bs pre, ditto QQ, I know it's hard to fold the kings on what looks like a good board but unless you know this guy is a pure lunatic who min raises turns with air after floating dry flops, it's a fold. (Maybe that's my inner nit talking) :P

The problem with Baluga is that I was folding every one paired hadn to a turn raise, which was weak as well.
the villain could raise the turn with TT or JJ since a lot of overcards could hit the river and make him fold, so min-raising and folding to 3B here is better for him than calling the turn and call a bigger river bet. I don't think I can fold ehre with his stacks, rarely folding to steal ( especially in position) and playing quite LAG. Any thoughts ?

Hi all,

The problem with the TT/JJ theory is this would be a strange way to play these holdings... the reasons you assign him for raising the turn with TT/JJ, would also be valid reasons on the flop, and even more so as calling your flop bet rather than raising lets your worse hands have a free turn to beat him. So we're assuming that he 1) chose not to 3b with TT/JJ preflop blind vs. blind, 2) chose to flat call the flop c-bet, and 3) chose to raise the turn. This seems like a fairly long shot parlay imo.

I think Baluga applies here, bet/fold is probably the way to go. The min-raise screams strength (not really a "protection" raise anyway as well).

Keep in mind this sequence has to happen an awful lot, and they be paying attention, for people to start making moves on you. Remember they don't know what you folded. If you folded an overpair to a turn raise 3 times in the past half hour, it probably feels really weak internally, but as far as they know you just had ace high or a miss, and won't even notice in all likelihood.
