  • I would check river to induce bluff by a missed flush draw, but obviously he did not have that, even though you did not post the results, the fact that he called the river indicates that.

    Also, I think the river bet is sort of bad in another sense because you represent AK, so he is not going to call you with 2 pair hands, and you are often going to be looking at a variety of full houses with that board.

  • i think the flop bet is meh but not terrible. if u get raised u have to get the rest in but ur not loving it at all. that said HU its fine, 3 way i think its a lot closer and 4 way (3 opponents) id def check. turn in this hand i def check since now if u get raised u have to dump it. ur not giving too much away by giving a free card either as if he does have just a Q or J he doesnt have 2 pair outs nemore whereas if he has a T ur in pretty bad shape and would love to hit ur draw. river as played is fine cos if he has u beat he woulda raised the turn. i dont agree with the bluff induce on this board cos its not very likely he has a draw by the river n if he does hes not going to bet it giving u nearly 2.5-1.
