And you're wrong. I'm always betting for either A) Value, or B) As a bluff . . . Seeing as we don't fold out anything better the only option is to bet for value. I decided if I was going to extract for one more street the best one to do it on was the river as opposed to the turn. I honestly put his flop calling range as mostly draws with the occasional AK/AA in there.
so u never bet to protect your hand? and get value at the same time?
cause for me in particular(and i dont know if this is wrong or right), i sometimes bet in order to fold out worse hands or make them pay BIG if the board is too dangerous and my hand is too vulnerable. this particular board is pretty wet. thats why i would bet turn.
im not saying my theorie is flawless,but thats probably how id play it.
because i have alot of example where i checked turn and villain got there on river.
If you have it bet it. GET value! on every street. dont give them anything for free. I think u agree that it seems as though u are ahead here on the turn(unless the small possibility that he has made a flush). so get some more money. ur losing value by checking the turn.
