I would bet the pot, bet ~half the pot on the turn.

The guy has $14.25 left. I'd bet the pot and let him push in the rest of his stack. (And call of course)


('Course, I have no idea what I'm doing.)

So you guys basically agree that I should be betting $7 on this flop? I chose to bet $5 instead, but I'm a big fan of underbetting.

Yeah, it's a really successful strategy at weak-tight tables, but when you're getting called, it's better to get more money in there when you can. FWIW, I think you can still be +EV by underbetting, just less +EV.

Call me crazy but I don't think betting 2/3 of the pot here is underbetting. He's not getting the odds he needs to call so he's making a mistake by drawing if that's indeed what he's doing. I like the $5 bet.

With implied odds, he's getting 24:5, 4.8:1 on a flop call of $5. FWIW, I did actually bet $5 in this hand.

Now, I'm not quite sure what his range of hands is... could someone help me with that?

Let's assume that he's a 30vpip/4pfr player.
