Fantastic value move when in position, Does anyone use this to get payed off?
Ok so this move I stack alot of players and get a hell of alot of value from it.
when we're in position We C-bet the flop against a pretty decent thinking player, we're in say late position raising standard 2.5 to 3 , we C-bet the Flop with either Top pair, or even middle pair if opponents range is wide enough to maintain a profitable advantage.
So Villain floats our C-bet on the Flop we know we are pretty much ahead most of the time, hes floating range can conclude, draws, medium and low pairs a weak ace since a 3-bet OOP is more standard than flatting with Ace Broad. and maybe broadways, suited specs.
We Check back the turn so to speak we are shutting down after the failed Stab at the pot.
having position villain is now first to act on the river, Either a blank comes down and villain feels he can push us off by pricing us out of the pot or like an Ace comes down or a card that completely doesn't add up his pre and post flop play.
He takes the bluff attempt, average around two thirds of the pot if he's playing optimal reg style.
we then re-raise him for the min amount.
This really baffles alot of players, because they see in almost all cases the shut down on the turn is a failed steal or a sign of weakness..
most players call since they are committed and our play doesn't add up, and the logical explanation is he is trying it on because he thinks I am weak because I haven't showed aggression throughout the hand.
Some guys will even go all in.. But in almost all cases you get that extra call which is the min raise to his river bet.
Works a treat for me especially in tournaments where tables break fast and players dont analyse your game
