No stats on V, but i saw him play a couple of hands and he is
I like this hand, let me break it down how i see it. So on the flop he bets 1/3rd.. it looks like a tester bet to see if you interested or it's a cheap C bet. On the turn he bets 2/3rd when checked to him saying he means business! You call again and check river and he over ships it. Do i call or fold...
Well if he thinks he has the best hand and is betting for value we got AA and JJ blocked, K on the river makes it less likely he has KK so his range is like KJ QJ QQ AJ KQ. You opened the door for him to bluff river and we only beat 1 hand in his range, It could be a bluff seeing how you checked to him 3 times and he could be applying max pressure to get folds from mid range hands that check 3 times. I think the correct play is to fold. But i would probably call anyway.
I play Micro don't trust my opinion!
Hi, with more information about the villain it is easier to analyze this hand, I think the correct movement is fold but I do not understand why after betting very moderately on the pre-flop, flop and turn he goes all-in on the river , I can understand that he wanted to give value to his hand and put a range of AK or KK but because in the end to make that bet his movement does not really make much sense however without having information about the villain the right thing for me is fold
I think I would fold and wait for a less Risiko spot with your stack.
On the other hand his allin can also represent weakness. Why scare away the opponent on the rioter when you’re confident of winning? Especially ion micro stakes i find it interesting how often a big bet like that is made on the river when their only chance to win is to make you fold.
Sorry for typos... my phones touchscreen is kinda broken☹️
I like preflop call, but the flop check i think is too defensive bet much better. Turn and River are too passive,again bet much better, and check raise. You were in a difficult position because of passivity. I think you threw it and this is a good decision.
