This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: nice bluff from opp 7AQA4 within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I like a lot villain line. when i check turn i got no good aces, maybe few suited low Ax, so when he didn't shot
I like a lot villain line. when i check turn i got no good aces, maybe few suited low Ax, so when he didn't shot his flash he just push and this is good game. maybe on another limits i had some full houses in my check behind, no good aces, but on NL2 i'll bet w full house too. so it was very good bluff from opp. what do you think about it?
Nice hand,I prefer flatting pre flop for set mining.

It's a really easy flat pre it's not a 3bet hand from the btn.I would typically only 3bet smaller pairs as a bluff from the SB vs CO or BTN opens.The flop cbet is ok and you should be giving up after checking the turn back vs a river bet from villain.You seem to be putting yourself in an aw'full lot of situations where your having to make huge hero calls.

I'm not sure I love the bluff from villain actually. I personally would retain some Ax here, but also specifically boats - AQ, QQ, and A7s - which somewhat protect my check back range.
His jam is also unnecessary. I realize overbets are sexy, but I don't think it's the best sizing for his entire range here. He has too many bluffs on this board and while from a theoretical standpoint that means he wants a large size, I think he can just pot it or even go for a more standard sizing an get the same job done.
The issue is he's trying to get you to fold weak hands, not strong ones, so there's absolutely no reason to overpot it. He's never getting you off Ax, and he's always folding out your give ups, so if anything he shouldn't even bet pot imo. Something like half pot will work almost as often, and ultimately is a cheaper bet for his range (which since his range is bluff heavy probably, is good).

Ignore my reply i didn't realize you rivered a full house so calling is perfectly ok.Flatting pre is still best though imo.

i dont think overbeting here just "sexy". against 1/2 i could TT+, maybe i fold 88 and 99, but i can call w TT,JJ, some Qx and KK vs missed FD, and when he is overbeting i cant call all these hands
