Eff. stacks on river is 842

How would you play this hand?

On the river when facing a polarised range like this i would want to c/r with my nuts and my bluffs that doesn't block his missed draws (or blocks his value), but the stacksizes doesn't allow this. I estimate his calling range on the river to be like 9Tss,KJ,JJ,77,KQ,KTs (23combos) and his folding range the missed spade-draws and a couple missed heart-draws(about 16 combos).

When im facing a range this polarised could I exploitative bet a really small sizing since his calling range will be about the same as if I bet bigger? He picks up som pairs on the Jh turn although that make him less polarised on the river and could find a call vs smaller sizes and fold vs bigger.

Thanks in advance RIO

I will take this line with 77 sometimes since I wont loose value vs his valuerange anyways and its a nice hand to CRAI turn since I dont block his calling Jx and its a board he will barrell of very often (imo). That the board favors his range is an argument for me too check flop since i want to balance my c/f range.

What`s the point of blocking some str8`s when you never have T9?

If I hold a ten I block some of his valuecombos (str8s) and if I block a Q i block some of his bluffing combos. I wanna block his value and not bluffs when i CR bluff.

I dont think that being willing to barrell a hand have that much to do with if I can c/c it or not, can you explain your thoughts further?

As I wrote above I would take this line with 88,78 and would def c/c 77 flop a bit. I agree that this isnt that much of a value range.

I wouldn't c/r AQ OTT since I block many of his bluffing combos (Q9,QT and others) and I dont block the str8

Agreed that we should be cbetting dry-ish boards, I altough don't agree withyou that we cant c/c this hand on this board. I think our EQ is more than enough for that on flop? How should holding Ad/Td in our hand effect our flop line? We have more barreling cards but can also c/c more comfortable and blocks some of his bluff-hands.

A big reason to my turn play was that this guy didnt bet 78 flop and probably not 88 so his valuerange isnt that big with my T-blocker.

I would take this line with 88,78 and i would def c/c 77 flop a fair amount since i wont loose value against his value anyways and balance my c/c a bit. I agree with you that my valuerange isnt that big but the reason behind this play is too exploit his wide bettingrange.

If I think he's stacking turn with T9,77,33,JT,QJ,KJ,AJ he has 60combos of value and if he bets flop/turn with all FDs, 56,45, and hands like Q9xc,KTxc etc we should be able too fold out enough combos to make the CRAI proiftable.

Its def is a cracky hand(played for fun HU vs a friend) but I think its funny too discuss and I dont think my move is supercold (or well, with my hand its cold, but i dont think his range will play good vs the turn push)

What do you guys think? Do I have enough FE or do you guys think I should c/c or c/f turn?

The hand:http://weaktight.com/6345863

Do you guys like c/c this hand on the flop to balance how often I'll c/f this flop as 3bettor?

What do you guys think my turnplay should be? Clear c/c since I have nice EQ and not that big of a value-pushing range?  C/r to fold out his 44 combos of non diamonds/spades KJ,KQ,AJ,AQ(if he doesnt get in AQ pre)?

What should i generally think of when choosing between a bluffcatchy line or a bet-line as pfr with borderline hands(not a ton of showdown-value and a bit EQ)?
1.Enough EQ?

2.Good implied odds?

3.Boards where I need to protect my checking range?

4.Boards where I wont fold out that much with a bet, making a cbet less attractive?

5.Boards where I can come to showdown a fair amount and realize my EQ?


Thanks in advance, bye!

Hi, played this hand a while ago and have been wondering a bit about how to play play my range when checked too turn in this spot.

The boxes are what range i call flop with, checks turn with and bets turn with.

Reasonings for my ranges OTT:
I check back the ace high FDs because they have showdownvalue and can checkdown river if offered and maybe call a bet. I also check back AJo because it has SDV and im planing too checkdown if offered and turn the non-diamonds AJo to bluffs if checked too. The reason why I want to push the non-diamonds and not thoose with diamonds are because thoose with diamonds blocks Axdd,Jxdd hands that he might planned to c/r turn but know bluffing river instead. I don't wanna block his potential bluff-combos for obvious reasons.
The 44-77 I checkback too balance my bluff range and the reason why I checkback the kings with diamond kickers are also to balance up my river bluffs(AJo) and because they block some outs if he plan to c/r a FD.

NOTE!: Im  balanced in this riverbluff situation. My push range river should contain about 25% bluffs if I push when he bets ~$120 and it contains 0,24%

I bet 88-99 because I can get value from AQ,AJ,7x c/c and the FDs because they have no showdown value so they cant go checkback turn and river as my A-high FDs can.

NOTE!: I can defend my minimum defense % vs a checkraise with this range OTT.

Since it will be difficult to construct a balanced river raise range and still defend enough vs turn c/raises because I dont have enough valuehands in my range to play a mixed(?) turn strategy(checking and betting), should I maybe checkback my whole range OTT and then construct my river range such as I raise(or bet if checked too) Kx,Full Houses and missed FDs without showdownvalue? Edit: I calculated the river bluff situation wrong  so this is'nt longer a problem but I still wonder what you think about checking back your whole range OTT.

I would appreciate your guys thougts on my thougts (haha), and how you guys would would construct your range and why you would do so.

PS: It might be (probably) some mathematical mistakes and I'm sorry if so and I also apologize for my semi-bad english. Have'nt slept for while and this is my first thread so please have a little indulgence :D
