Interesting spot.


VPIP: 20, PFR: 18, 3B: 10, AF: 2.8, Hands: 460

Villain is actually probably one of the best regs at the limit. Very aggressive, value bets well and thinly. I feel he'd be betting AK for value here if we check river.

Should we be betting or x/shoving? I feel x/shoving is better and more sophisticated line given his aggressive image but could be wrong.

I'm just not sure if he would b/call a flush.

If we do bet what sizing should we make it?

It depends a bit on his defending range OTB and his peeling habits post.

If you say he is decent would that mean he flats a wide range here (like he should be this deep) or will he fold to a lot of 3bets? If he has a tighter range and doesn't peel to wide on this runout he will probably end up OTR with a range of medium pairs, 76s, some slowplayed 55/88 (maybe KK/AA) and flushes so I would feel best about betting just a standard 2/3 pot amount. After all it's a runout that allows you to keep bluffing.

If you think he is the type to rather peel wide and do stuff like doublefloats I would tend to check or bet smallish.

That being said I would bet turn a lot bigger in this spot with my entire range so we can actually shove rivers better.
