Are You Dizzy Blood?

The villain in this hand is a 50/6 with a 3bet of 9.1% over a small sample

I would never play this hand this way vs a reg as my play on the flop would scream strength. However against an unknown or a fish it often works perfectly and induces the raise. I now have a 2/3 pot size bet stack remaining but have 2 streets to bet it. This allows me to check back the turn as he has the impetus in hand and allow him to continue his bluff. If he checks back I still have the opportunity to shove the river and he might improve his hand and call or call anyway with 88-JJ.

  1. The tiny flop c-bet is perfect but i think you can just get it in when villain raises this much after 3betting pre too. They aren't folding anything ever. Calling then checking the turn just gives them a chance to check back and save the $15.20

  2. Tips from a crusher always welcome. Ty sir..!!
