re: Poker & $50 NLHE Full Ring: Disgusting river spot
I don't cbet because no pairs will fold and many players like to chkraise this kind of board since I rep basically nothing. Then it becomes a guessing game (is he bluffing
or not?) and there is no need.
Checking behind doesn't give away much info (I like doing it here with made hands too) and I can always credibly raise his turn bet, which then looks exactly like a trap. Alternatively, if I actually hit turn then I can let him bluff away.
The problem here is that he is doing exactly the same thing only 1 street later and he can credibly have a lot of hands that beat my pair (flushes, 3x , QJ, TT).
