Td Js in the hole, rivered a brick, turned my pair of tens into a bluff. really happy with this one
not really sure I like your river bet here when you have exactly what you appear to have and I could have all kinds of better hands.
Man! You almost made it through the whole hold em round without a mistake. Do you really think he checks back a pair here to fold it? I like checking to induce again as I feel his most likely hands are, in order, Kx, air, Jx. The river is 100% for value and is likely too thin. I'm really surprised to see him show up with Ax here. Seeing that would make me want to not stab a lot when he chks back the flop.
You say you're planning on b/3betting the river, and I think that's a mistake. I haven't seen what moritz does here, but I'd be very surprised if he raised you with any hand and even more surprised if he called a 3bet with a hand you beat. The good news is that, since he raises you so infrequently, it's not going to matter. The bad news is, if he does raise you, threebetting is super spew.
A few thoughts: first of all, I think your decision to raise right away is pretty defensible, but since I guess Mortiz thinks you're going to be fastplaying a lot more than a normal player, I'd probably just wait for the turn. I also think you should strongly consider a fold on this particular river with your hand, all of Moritz's semibluffs got there and there just isn't enough pure air in his range to justify a cd imo.
i actually folded a pair of aces here (obv hated everything about the hand from 5th onwards). should i have paid this one off?
Gotta look at some maths but folding 6th is probably correct once I pick up a likely 1/2 of the pot, if you call 6th you should be going to the showdown as nothing has really changed.
