This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: 2NL Top Two Pair vs. Possible Straight/Flush within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Should I have check-called this river instead? Do I ever fold to the river raise? Getting 4 to 1 at that point on a call.
T: as played, check/call vs normal bet. If we bet, then we must bet bigger, but it's better to just play for a cheap showdown. It sucks, but board is getting worse and villain isn't folding.
R: as played, easy check/call vs normal bet. We have to slow down, and hope to see a cheap showdown. We don't want to get raised.
As played (bet), yes bet/call vs goofy raise.
Hello, I agree with that. Bet on the flop could be a little bigger, above 60% of the pot, because of some draws on the flop. On the turn we can play bet or check/call. On the turn complete sometimes some straights, but usually top two pairs are the best. So I prefer bet. The river card - 100% check and hard decision, what to do if he will bet. Check/call on the river seems safely. GL
