    Nitty Top Pair Fold? 2c/4c Global

    https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-client/poker/10/hand/5b2fc481aa4b05159c53dfe4 I raise A7s utg and get a cold call from the sb. I expect his range to be wider than advisable as the player pool rarely 3bets and loves to call in the blinds. I am definitely near the bottom of the standard lojack open range. On the flop I decide to check back to protect my check range with some top pair holdings. I am not looking to go 3streets with this hand, as it is more of a Category 2 hand (Upswing Lab terminology, means a hand that has showdown value but plays better as a check/call.) On the turn he donks 1/2 pot, which can easily just be a stab. I think he can do this with a lot of his 2nd pair and 3rd pair holdings, as well as flushdraws as well as straightdraws like 97 and 54. I call On the river, he gets probably the best card for his range. Flush comes in, and any hands with an 8 now have trips. he leads around 80% pot, and considering the range I put him on, I decide to put in the fold. Having a 7 blocks some straightdraws that he can bluff with, and I don’t block his remaining A8s combos, since the 8d is on the board. If I had a hand like AQ I would call here, since he can possibly value-bet a worse ace here. Although my range is underrepped on the river, I am decently happy with my decision and the process that I went about when coming to this decision. Feedback?

My redraw with the queen kept me in the hand, but my stack behind would have been a weird size so I decided to stack off. Anything you can say about my betsizing and general play?

    Fold my rivered trips?

    Thoughts on my line here? Can i fold flop to a raise? Can i fold river when he jams? https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-client/poker/10/hand/5b10bf7caa4b0516653a437d

    Spewy play and got lucky?

    https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-client/poker/10/hand/5b0b0a37aa4b0516653691c1 I think I should just fold pre to this reraise, I am just gambling when I take this flop. On the flop I call his big bet with a gutshot. Drawing to 3 outs, since I believe he is often on a club draw. On the turn he fires again. For some reason I sense weakness in this line by him. It feels like he just has a better draw than me. I decide that I can rep the king turn, and shove. He folds. Am I just the luckiest bastard alive, or is this in any way a long term profitable play? I am trying to get better at ranging myself and my opponent. My calling range on the flop is QJ+, 44, 66, AKc, KJc, along with my draws, which call to bluff turn. He has an uncapped range being the 3better preflop. His value bets (having 3bet) on this flop are QQ+, KQ, AQ, and his bluffs are hands like 57, along with several combos of broadway clubs. On the turn when he fires on the king, I can rep a king more than he can, can’t I? A king reduces the likelihood that he has a set, and clubs remain unimproved. Besides, does he really barrel again when KJc makes top pair? Does he cbet flop with his bullshit offsuit broadways? I decide to bluff shove with my gutshot, since I have by far the worst hand I can possibly have. I should be folding this hand preflop, but considering I decide to call, is my strategy here defensible? In the moment I admit I did not think this deeply. My exact thought process was something along the lines of “Get out of this pot with your clubdraw, pleb.” Thoughts?

    Nit fold at 2c/4c?

    https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-client/poker/10/hand/5b0556c5aa4b0514053f8c23 In this hand I raise to punish the limpers. I have been seeing many limp folds, and wanted to exploit this. Instead I get two callers to the flop. After the flop checks through, my top pair on the turn is a clear value bet. I get one call to the river, which is one of the worst in the deck. opponent donk leads with a pot size bet and I put him on a flush or an 8. I am only ever bluff catching in this scenario. Thoughts? david

    2c/4c Global Poker Hard

    https://play.globalpoker.com/poker-client/poker/10/hand/5b048a5faa4b0514053f5227 Interested to hear opinions on this hand! When I flop middle pair, I opted for a check call line. Should I be folding to his cbet? When he checks turn I sense weakness and turn my hand into a bluff? Should I be checking back? River is an obvious fold imo
