Check-calling the flop and checking the turn and coming out with a "value bet" on the river. Clever villain did not fall into my trap by betting the turn and folded his pocket 99.
Ok, again, I miss your point.
Check calling the flop is ok, as you have nutfldr??? Surely not representing tripK? That would be a reraise, with the fl dr on the board? Are you representing trips or do you have nutfl dr?
Checking the turn, perhaps for check raise? Why would tripK do that here, and give another free/cheap card to a fl dr?
A "value bet"? Vbets get called, else NOT vbet, think about that. If you vbet and your opponents fold, you did not make a vbet.
I still do not see how you represent trips here. Just bluffing a busted fl draw, and taking it down.
How would you have played the hand as villian?
