Hello you lovely people.

I put him on a spade draw and he had been calling ALOT already during the session. Since he was in the BB and I let him in cheap (He had folded to bigger PF bets earlier), he could have easily had a flush draw on the Flop. When the spade comes on the river I checked behind thinking he had made his flush and expected me to bet again since I led on every street already. So did I miss a value bet? What else did I do wrong/right? Thank you!

I don't mind your check behind on the river, as flush draws will make up a good part of his range.

I do like a bigger flop bet. If you are going to bet the river, I think your line has to be to bet, and fold to a check raise.

You could have reversed the line you took check, pot, quarter which might even make him raise you for value, but I don't understand betting so small in a .02 cent game! Incorporate BIG BETS!

Yep. You are both right. I need to bet bigger I just wasn't sure how big he would call and I wanted someone in the pot. I had scared off other players with larger PF bets already. Thank you for responding and helping me to get better! @azforlife I like that line and hope to be able to sue it he next time in this spot!

Is that your normal betting size for wet flop textures? I generally go 3/4ths in SRP with large made hands and big draws.

Is that your normal turn sizing? What other ranges are you potting the turn with? I wouldn't recommend that sizing personally. And if you're just purely playing exploitatively, that T helps your opponents range a ton.

As played, betting river depends on your opponents. Since we can see what he had it looks like he's a fish. So if you had stats that indicated that, I'd absolutely at least 1/3rd to 1/2 pot the river.

Thanks John. I didn't have any real stats on him but he had been calling small bets a lot. I didn't want to raise him out of the pot which accounts for my smallish PFR

Do you recommend less than the pot on that turn? I put him on a straight or flush there (AQs AKs) and wanted him to pay if he was drawing. I know now that he is indeed a fish and took notes. I hope I see him again soon!
