1. Hey V in this case is 48/10 over 40 hands and previously called down with draws to the river

    I'm wondering if I should be raising on the river in this spot? and if so the thought process behind it.
    thanks a ton, please don't rip into me too hard this is my first post. - I can't seem to find the hand history paster if pocket 5's has one?

  2. I would raise because if he had a set and therefore a full house he'd probably jam on you on the turn. Raise it for value. The only had that beats you now is a set if he played it really awkwardly or a better 7. He probably has Ax something.

  3. I'd rather iso pre or fold.

    As played, the only hand that improves on the river is KJ. I wouldn't be too concerned about that hand and would raise for value since someone with those stats/the history you mentioned probably won't fold a pair.

  4. Probably would have folded flop bet.. As played villan doesnt have much left I'd raise exactly enough to put her all in. Makes them think your bullying them and you might get a light call.

  5. what does the 48/10 mean, i have never used any poker software, but yeah i would raise also, that 300 dinky bet looks like she is trying to get a showdown for cheap.

  6. Its mean he raises 10 per cent of hands and overall plays 48 per cent. Which is quite fishy yet only over a few hands

  7. Thanks. Betting R for value Makes sense given vs' call station stats. I just was really afraid of KJ, but I reckon V would then be not be smart enough / level to minraise river, thinking I would jam,

    I totally wasn't calibrating range and river bet sizing properly!

  8. Fold pre. But as played raise for value and call a shove.

  9. thanks those lines make sense, raising for value to call a shove.

    now conceptually, can you please let me know where I'm going wrong in my thinking that calling with J7 suited is correct given the passivity of the table, and my position, and chip position, would I have decent implied odds and have ok pot odds?

  10. Because you're calling with J7 suited either hoping to flop trip 7s, a weak flush draw of sorts, or an oddball straight where you'd still be losing to QJ. J7 will get you into trouble, since flopping a jack has a high likelihood of you being outkicked in a multiway pot, and you are bound to put more money in behind when the flop comes something like 9 7 2. Just let marginal hands like this go, or if you're going to play them, at least raise to thin the field so you have a chance to take the pot down with a c-bet at least.

    Thanks. yeah okay. I think i get it. J7 suited is just way to marginal m-way, and basically even if i hit say a flush (which i think its like 114:1) against, NOT bearing that its' not the nut flush, and I'm paying 4.5: 1, so theoretically making a mistake. Wondering what my range should be for calling in that spot like AXs, any pocket, and say t9s+?
