Do you think i can bet bigger on this board even with obvious draws hitting vs a loose passive.

hey mike2198

I think you can certainly bet the turn bigger here. If you make it .45 or .50 I don't think you will lose a customer too often and you win 15 to 20 more cents!

So the same can be said of the river. Here is a spot where you can play perfectly and your opponent is going to play very badly. We have an easy/clear bet/fold for value, because our opponent only check-raises a flush. And our villain is never check-folding a straight for a pot sized bet or less, and there are a lot of straights, so I think we should bet close to the pot and fold to a raise.

Ok cool i thought at the end of the hand i could of got all in but i was trying to give myself room to fold when that flush hit, when he checked the river i was unsure if he would check the nutz and was tempted to get all in vs this player but thought i would be owning myself if he did have the flush which was why my turn and river bets went down to just over half the pot.
