re: Poker & $25 NLHE 6-max: LAG image vs small river raise
I don't recall atm what his fvcb stat was. Not with my comp right now. But a solid TAG flatting me kind of narrows his range. PP's, AK (if he doesn't 3bet it), AQs, prolly AQo v me, maybe AJs, he shouldn't flat SC's against me but he might anyway. SC's miss this hard, pp's that aren't sets I'm good against. Aces mostly beat me, and sets punch my face in.
I took this line to look bluffy. I cbet so often, so when I got flatted, it definitely could have been a float. So I check the turn to let him fire at it, planning to flat that, then bet river.
Instead he checks behind, so now it seems like he feels he has SD value, but not strong enough to want to fire.
To villian it looks like I cbet, gave up when I got called, then realized he didn't love his hand either, and perhaps I'm thinking I can take this away from him with a river bet.
If this is how he's thinking, then he should flat here rather wide, not raise. Bt he indeed raises. So now he either loves his hand (55?) or is this ever a bluff/turning a made hand into a bluff? I've seen lots of villains who turn hands into bluffs like this, so that's where the dillema came for me. If he'd make this raise with a smaller pair.
