re: Poker & $10 NLHE 6-max: river action
Pokerkid has it nailed I think, to elaborate on flatting pre to the person suggesting to 3bet, he have position!! This is so critical, against some villains I find a 3bet with TT if I'm out of position in the blinds. Villains 3b calling and 4b range out of position against us has TT beat quite considerably, and we fold out a whole host of hands we can extract from post flop. I can't justify finding a 3bet for value in position against a relatively standard 10NL 6max player, I'd much rather play post flop in position and try and extract more value, it's most definitely +EV to flat rather than 3bet here imo.
The flop is villain dependant, I'm raising for value against spewboxes, but here the flat is ok, as is the raise on the turn - as pokerkid has said already.
To elaborate on the river, does he always underbet the second barrel? To underbet/call a raise on the turn on that board might suggest he has a draw, but to check the river out of position possibly he has some showdown value? Or is just giving up? I dunno, I'd be narrowing his range here to primarily to suited aces, Kd9d, 88, 66. From a 25/15 surely two pairs, sets and a flopped straight are both betting more on the turn if he has any idea what he is doing, particularly on such a wet board and is likely prepared to ship the turn? I'd bet like €1.95 (just looks less than €2, more likely to get called and sacrifice 5c lol). I can only guess you bet he raised here? Villain has taken an awkward line and I only really see K9 that beats us here??? I dunno how much credit I'd be giving a check raise here, if that was the line he did indeed take.
