    Hi Guys

    I just wanted peoples opinions on this situation:

    Reads: Fairly standard stats for my opponents based on less than 50 hands.

    Blinds/Antes: 60/120/15

    Hero - A:club:8:club:

    3 Fold, MP2 (2985) Raise to 240, HJ Fold, CO (4271) Call 240, 2 Fold, Hero BB (5049) Call 120.


    Flop (915): 2:spade:A:heart:8:diamond:

    Hero Check, MP2 Bet 360, CO Fold, Hero Call 360.


    Turn (1635): 2:spade:A:heart:8:diamond:10:heart:

    Hero Check, Vilain Check.


    River (1635): 2:spade:A:heart:8:diamond:10:heart:J:spade:

    Hero Check, Villain Bet 2370 (All-In), Hero ???


    Any comments much appreciated.

    Standard pre, flop and turn as we dont really want to have raising range on flop this dry.

    Not the greatest river card but our hand is heavily under represented so I cannot see fold as option. Villain might not cbet JJ on flop so KQ, AJ are possible. But I think villain could have some AK, AQ, JT as value hands. Not sure about bluffs though. But your hand looks lot like 8x or weak Ax for villain so turning some KJ, QJ to bluff would make some sense if he thinks he can get most of your range to fold. Or some K9s.

    But to me this hand is so high in your range that we are folding next to everything if we fold this one.

    Thanks Ghaleon, you write:
    How would you feel if we were deeper- do you think a CR here would be good? Like, where I would CR with draws and bluffs as well for balance.

    Well main problem is that there just ain't much of sensible semibluff combos on A82r. Plus when we just call pre our range won't have biggest Ax combos. So if we check-raise two pairs and sets then we have really tough time to continue versus three barrels as top of flop call range will be some AJ.

    But with deeper stacks versus some people I might have totally unbalanced check-raise range consisting of just those strong hands. E.g. if I think villain is unable to fold most Ax then it can lead into situation where we want to just aim for big value.

    As flop semibluff some 43s, 54s with backdoor flush make some sense but as said problem is villain range advantage and weakening of calling range as default. Like with deeper stacks only strong combo villain might not have are usually A2o and maybe A8o. Usually villain will have all Axs and pockets from that position.
