Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 7
2 folds, CO raises to $0.62, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.37

Flop: ($1.34) 8, 3, 10 (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70

Hero checks, CO bets $1.96, Hero calls $1.96

River: ($6.66) 6 (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $3.60, Hero calls $3.60

Total pot: $13.86 | Rake: $0.62


Villain stats unknown, seems to be a regular.

I feel the flop call is really standard. And decided to call the turn aswell because there are so many draws in his range.

As all draws missed except the 79s (that I think was also in his range). I felt I got a really good price on the river to call down.

I think he might bluff the river there with all suited overcards. Both spades and clubs. For some reason i don't really put an 8 or 810 in his range on the riverbet. Nor other strong hands (I assume he'd defend with bigger bets.)

Some inputs on how some of you migth approach these heavy draw big range spots OOP. I'm new to 25NL (only about 5k hands)

Ambitious.

You could consider check/raising the river as a bluff. Think it's a cool spot for it because the majority of his range is b/f heavy.

Preflop it's probably close between calling and 3-betting, I like both approaches - calling more against an unknown as I don't want to waste the value of my hand not knowing villains continuing tendencies pre or potential mistake rate post.

I think we can safely fold turn most of the time against an unknown with 3rd pair as we have enough 8x and Tx in our BB defending range to call a 2nd bullet with. 7s are a little too weak as even most of villains draws have tons of equity/outs against us and that turncard isn't all that great of a bluffcard. So even though we might get semibluffed here I feel like we need to lay it down most of the time as we can only make tons of mistakes OTR.

His riversize doesn't look bluffy to me and even though two flushdraws busted out I feel like calling river here against that size is -EV.

I like the principal idea in theory, but without reads/info this can just be a spewy play against nonthinking opponents at microstakes^^
