So it's kinda a toss up between the value we lose from a potential check-raise vs the lower risk of just leading for a lower amount... with a marginal hand like this I probably opt for the lower risk.
Yeah a ABC TAG wont bet this 100% of times but a ABC TAG doesnt fold a draw to a 1/2-pot sized bet ever.
They just look at there hand and see they have 8 or 9 outs and see the bet and think "hmmm im not geting odds to call with my draw but this fancy thing called implied odds mean i have to call cause i stack him every time on the river".
But ABC TAGs respect the check raise .
Hence me loving the c/r line BW sugested, it folds out all his draws and weak made hands witch are a majority of his range and seeing if where to double barrel here and get called we almost have to fire every river....
