What't the thinking on your river bet Chuck? Is it a blocking bet gone wrong and do you feel you've priced yourself in to call?

To me it looks like on the turn you have decided you are check-calling to the river, which makes the decent size bet on the river odd as it kind of represents the ace and there's not anything that is folding there that you are behind.

Essentially, if you are going to bet the river, bet the turn instead I think.

He could have the A here (or horribly a set), or you may have induced the push with a mid pair 77-JJ all fit.

Sticky hand though I agree.

Yeah, tbh I really had no plan in this one. Multitabling still takes a lot of effort on my part, and in hands where I actually have to think, they usually end up sticky like this one :p

I think a turn bet-fold is better...

But ya, river was supposed to be a blocking bet. Didn't block much though :/

I lose a huge edge when I play more than one table. I usually read every hand history after the hand and it stops me doing it quite as much.

Whether the edge is made up for by playing at twice (or more) the pace, I don't know.

Yeah, there's a definite toss-up. I think I'm taking in a bigger winrate, but my ROI is down the drain :/

If you're playing against a decent player and you get a cold-call on the flop with a board-pair.. I would have to think they hit the set. In this situation, it's possible that he had a big PP as well, TT->KK. I would have bet the turn pretty hard and you'll find out right away where you're at.. cold-call or raise, you're probably in trouble. He slowplayed the set (probably) and tried to let you think you were ahead to try and double up through you on the river.

Ive got to say, with the turn bet and the tight read, i think i would have to give him the ace. He calls your bet (with that flop he has an ace or a PP he likes, maybe a FH but doubt it) on the flop and then bets on the turn when you check. He was trying to just let you bet and build the pot until the river where he is last to act and pushes all in. I would have even folded on the turn probably, especially with a tight read on the villain unless I felt lucky to catch a queen lol

Well his line (especially the river push with so little fold eq.; I can only see a middle pair so often there) I can't see much that i beat here.

Results: I folded.
