Check-fold. You are not repping a Queen on the turn, here. Rather, you are repping a bluff. If you actually had a queen, wouldn't you check-raise fairly often? If you think there's dead money in the pot and you are trying to win it, check-raise the flop or the turn. But beware that against a good regular who has position on you, you're going to be ...

I think the only way you're beat here is if villain turned a flush. With such a wet board, I think villain would have pushed QQ+, sets, 2 pair, or a straight earlier in the hand. Since our line doesn't look too strong, when he calls the turn bet, he could be calling with any pair (even a lower pocket pair), and even overs with a gutshot, planning to ...

You have two choices. Bet small (1/3 to 1/5 pot) and get value from his 55 or AQ or A8. If you bet 3/4 pot you have a way to ordinary line and it looks like youre trying to get value form a good hand, such as flush or what you got. I would bet about 5/4 pot to make it look like a bluff. They love to hero call here when it looks like youre trying to push ...

Kicker certainly still matters here for an Ace - anything above a 3 plays (referencing other answer). I just don't see villain folding any A8+ here with the way that you played the hand. What is your plan here with donking the turn? What would you play for value like that? I disagree with your statement that there is plenty of room for maneuver here. It's ...

Seen preflop action I kinda like the flop call because you have a little something + redraws and you can float the turn if he doesn't 2nd barrel. However once you hit your flush draw on the turn I'm not sure I like that call: you're getting only 2.2:1 on your $96 call and I think it's unlikely you'll extract much in case you hit (not to mention the reverse ...

Preflop this hand definitely will play better by 3betting from the sb than flatting. Your perceived range for leading this turn will be fairly weak so actually leading a weak hand vs an aggressive hand reading reg is not a good idea. Also with regards to your reads, over 980 hands you really should have a bunch more info than just vpip/pfr/AF

Yes, if you dislike money. Your line is always a bluff, and will always get called.

You are going to be playing the board. I am calling A2C if you bluff with a PSB or less. Best case the 3 scared him but I doubt it. I am guessing CO has you beat and knows it. Personally I am not even checking at this point, I may be on tilt for calling 23 in the first place let alone the 147 more I chased it with out even a good draw. There a very real ...

It all depends on how the villian views your play. Specifically, do you call and defend often in the blinds. If the answer is yes then you will probably get hero called too much here for your play to be profitable. If the answer is no then you should be able to bluff the river here with a good size bet. However, this is all under the assumption that the ...

this is above my stakes, but if you're going to rep the queen, I'm thinking it has to be a biggish bet. He's not worried about kicker problems with Ax anymore.
