Thoughts on what I should do on river? It is bvb versus someone who isn't terrible but isn't good.I cbet the flop full pot because that is my default standard and if I am going to bet air here, I should be betting my J'sTurn is meh, I kinda want him to raise me at some point and I am trying to create a "I'm full of shit" line. When he calls, it gives me chance to check river and have him bluff at it. So now the question is can I raise here and get called by worse enough times to make it profitable. I think a raise sometimes looks like a desperation bluff and might get looked up light but I think the villain needs to be competent enough to pull it off.Posted ImageFeral Cow Poker Hand ConverterFull Tilt Pot Limit Omaha $0.50/$1 - 6 playersUTG: $100.00 UTG+1: $226.45 CO: $319.55 Button: $246.70 SB: $123.85 (Hero)BB: $95.60 Preflop: ($1.50) Hero is SB with Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image (6 players)4 folds, Hero raises to $3, BB calls $2Flop: ($6.00) Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image (2 players)Hero bets $6, BB calls $6Turn: ($18.00) Posted Image (2 players)Hero bets $12, BB calls $12River: ($42.00) Posted Image (2 players)Hero checks, BB bets $21, Hero ???

@ AJ94What hand would he bluff with on the end that would call a river check raise?Unless he will value bet a naked jack... but even then villain might bet fold KJxx, QJxx.I can't find value in a river CR with this hand.

villain could look up with 55xx in fact that kinda looks to me like what he has thinking he can value bet and have a naked jack look him up. I think if villain is confident enough in 55,here to attempt to get value out of a naked jack which I think you rep (that or air) then its certainly a good spot. it really depends on villains state of mind imo. I think its prolly close because if he is value betting 55 here he's probably not bet folding and the raise might be worth it for meta game even if he mucks cause getting checkraised like that is just tilting imo. cliffs: I think its close. i think you're probably good here a decent amount of the time but whether villain will look you up enough is another question. what kind of raise are we thinking here? full out pot, click back, or somewhere in the middle? if we think about what were going to raise to we can come up with the math and id feel more comfortable deciding if its profitable long term.

Not quite sure what to do on river. I didn't want to b/f and I think he probably isn't bluffing, but the halfpot bet is always so fkin suspicious.Guy was 46/10 and semi aggro on flop-riverIs this a nuts or air situation? Think this could be a set turning into a bluff?

No idea what I'd do there Fargo, because I suck at PLO right now, but I guess I would fold.So in this hand, I have no reads, but I do have a few questions...1. Is my hand a good hand to 3bet?2. Is it even strong enough to flat OOP?3. In a 3bet pot with hand on this board, what's the best play?

A. Bet pot

B. Bet about 1/2 pot

C. Check/Call

D. Check/Fold

Very interesting hand.I guess a set could be turning his hand into a bluff here, but if villain does have a set why is he not re-potting the turn after hero CRs. Would AAxx or KKxx really be that worried about exactly 25xx? Also I think a set bets more than half pot on the turn.QJTx with or without a club draw could have called the CR.Ask villain to bet 30 next time.
