This is a discussion on $10 NLHE 6-max: Folding a low straight on the board fearing a flush within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Here is a hand that I know could use a ton of improvement. I believe my fold was way too tight.
All i know about
River : (143.5 BB, 2 players) 5♦
Hero checks, CO bets 45 BB, fold
CO wins 136.4 BB
For this hand I put my opponent on QQ+ and AQs+. He seemed pretty tight and rarely ever raised (Never saw anything he raised with). What threw me off was how small his bet on the river was, I wasn't sure if it was a value bet or if it was a timid bet. I also believe that I way overvalued my kings.
I have never really experienced a situation specifically like this and I was wondering in what ways I could have improved.
I'm also a pretty new player so any help would be appreciated!

Call its extremely hard for 7 and we block a few flush combos which follow through with preflop action
U prob folded to qq or jj
Slow played aces we chop..
So its hard not to.chop its cheap enough
You mentioned hes extremely tight... given his small size it looks more like a probe.
Given the action we have something and if we have enough we could def shove on river and make it look trappy.
The more dangerous the board the harder for tight guy to call... its called denying a chop

re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: Folding a low straight on the board fearing a flush
I would like to point out that with nearly 200 effective bb, his range is probably wider than what you stated, he could flat with any pp and some axs hands.
Anyway, bet the river like he did, fold to a raise.

I would usually 4bet Kings preflop. Would have made your decision on the river easier because it will narrow down his range.
