UTG is 21/13, seems kinda recreational player, or very weak-tight. from 63hand sample hard to tell.

Can I get value from two pairs or just x/f river ?

Really don't like x/raising this dry of a board. Would much prefer x/calling.

As played we definately have value otr. Seems like an easy shove.

Hi Justin,

Again I agree with birdayy... I am shoving this river all day long and twice on Sunday, expecting to get paid by AK/AQ and any 2 pair. As for asking if you should check/fold the river? C'mon now... don't be results oriented, just cause he had the nuts this time doesn't mean we should check/fold very strong hands in the future.

My advice would be shoving all in on the flop.Thats where you went wrong.You gave your opponent a oppurtunity to catch up and beat your hand.

In the future shoving all in with a set you will have better results.

Thou some players may disagree with this logic and say its better to slowplay the set and get more value or chips.

This is my opinion doesnt necessarily mean i am right,its the way i would of played it.

Dave is right also thou and nothing wrong with what he said,guess depends on the player.

Bracelet Winner
