This is a discussion on $5 NLHE 6-max: River decision - What would you do? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4
SB: $8.43 (VPIP: 26.67, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 27.27, Hands: 33)
His tiny bet into min re- raise on the turn is questionable. (He might have improved to a flush draw or hit a straight)
I wouldn't put him on an ace. Its a toss up between a non ace 2 pair, a straight, and air. Given his play so far, I think its an ok call.

Bet size doesn't look like a bluff, cheap for him to see flop so his range is wide (along with his VPIP), and his turn and river action is pretty strong.
Outside a bluff, we can realistically only beat a weaker ace which he's not likely to have given his betting line.

re: Poker & $5 NLHE 6-max: River decision - What would you do?
His bet on the turn is weird.... if we raise and he raises we should just shove here. He is definetly a bad player and will be capable of having junk and some made hands. It just looks like a bad bluff and when u bet he dowsnt know what to do so he raises and hopes u fold.
This river is awful and hits straights and 2pairs etc if we were right i think hes caughtup on river.
But yeh i think shove turn once he raises. And the rest doesnt matter.

You can bet smaller on the flop imo. You're only really charging 97 and 75. Either way ahead or way behind, in which case a smaller bet is preferable. $0.19 or $0.20 seems fine to me.
I would call turn and call a river spew, then take notes about the opponent and stack him a few times. If you're gonna raise turn, raise slightly bigger (giving him almost 3 to 1 now) and try to get it in. Slight problem with that is of course the fact you could be stone dead.
