This whole situation is still very read dependent, which is why I harped on it in my earlier post.

agreed. I just think bet/fold is wasting as bet against anyone who will call that turn. If a better but not nut hand is calling that turn then they're calling that river too.

I'm glad somebody mentioned this. You're getting called to much and getting put in the same [censored] spot on the river when you B/F.

If you're going to check and are planning on calling, you might as well bet out anyway. You increase your chances of winning the pot, and if he raises you, you know that you're beat, either way you invest one bet. With betting, you increase your winning chances.

Grunch...

Reads?

I realize most of the crypto tables are rather tight, but it still helps in this situation. I think you played it fine though.

I have a question though. What were your plans if you got raised on the turn?

I was planning on c/f to more than one opponent. I'd probably b/f one LATE calling opponent, putting him on something worse than an earlier caller who had to fear others coming with him. I'd probably c/f again to an early position caller.

As you said, the Crypto tables appear very tight. No reads except table is the usual 15-18VPIP on average from what I can tell after 2 orbits. No donk plays so far.

check/fold the turn, its a small pot that you have little chance of taking down

I think the size of the pot is exactly the reason why this bet is profitable at a very tight table. People are folding Q's and 8's here to me at the very least.
