  • should I have bet smaller on river ?

    AF says when you are pretty sure you have the best hand you should often bet 1/3 potsize on river because people call too much and you collect regularly 10 bb at least , this has the expection of getting aces preflop

    but here he could have hit a ton like Jd , 9d, 8d that would call my river betsize , i was targeting this part of villians range

    Did I miss value by betting too big ?

    It depends entirely on your image, but I would say, yes, you did... plus, it’s not just getting called for value that yo7 are aiming for, you missed an opp to get someone to bluff back at you by betting small, as possible block8ng bet

    A small 20-30%(ish) bet tells a consistent story of having completed a weak flush or A-pair on the turn, and you aren’t excited about the 4th diamond, so are blocking,,, which an aggressive player might be willing to test you on.

    I think your bet sizing Is perfect if you hadn’t already bet the turn.

      I would have bet the Turn way bigger. I think if they are calling 1/3 on the turn they will also call 2/3+
      Are they going to call with a gut shot (especially with no DBFD) for 1/3 pot bet? I doubt it. So what
      are they calling with?

      I know we aren't suppose to have a calling range from the SB pre flop here but the reality is all the
      hands we should be 3 betting as bluffs most players are calling with and then some.

      Maybe hands like these are in the SB range that are calling a turn bet. Maybe a little less

      44,ATs-A2s,K8s+,QTs+,JdTd,Jd9d,Td9d,Jd8d,Td8d,9d8d,9d7d,8 d7d,8d6d,7d6d,6d5d,5d4d,ATo-A6o,KJo-K7o,QTo

      That's 162 combos that I think will continue form 2/3 pot some players IE calling stations maybe even a pot sized bet.
      The other 120 combos or so are folding as soon as you reach for chips IMO.

      I would have bet about 3500 on the turn and then probably 1/2 pot on river. I don't think they will
      call more than 1/2 pot unless they have JdXx but they might find a hero call with lots of other stuff.
