MP caller was a fish, he called a lot preflop and played pretty passively overall, CO was a tight regular, we had played together a fair bit and he usually just folds to all my 3bets and doesnâ€™t get out of line or not that I have noticed.
I probably could have bet a couple bbs bigger on the flop and turn but aside from that I think they are both standard. When the reg called the flop and folded the turn, I figured his range from being any middle PP, or Qx. Which naturally weights the fishes range more towards draws. So with that said, would you still bet this river? We have 57.50 and the pot is 102 so bet folding is obv not an option. The reason I chose to bet 55 and leave 2.50 behind is because I think itâ€™s worth sacrificing 2.5bbs of value for the fish not to have to be faced with an actual all in bet, but a bet that looks more weird/stupid because I left such a tiny amount behind. You can argue this makes no difference and vs a reg I donâ€™t think it does but I do think it is worth it vs a fish.
