i guess your question is whether or not to raise 4th?

My question is why wouldn't you?

unsure if 4th plays better as an x/c, also is his call on 5th objectively bad in your opinion?

I don't like the 3-bet on 4th street. You know about what he has, but he knows nothing about what you have. Why give him so much information?

Why give him info by just flatting?

3b 100% of your range here imo

You could have (KK)3T, where you are in bad shape and you don't want to put in so many bets. You are only slightly ahead with your actual hand, but you could be way behind. Your range is way behind him. If you want to not give information by doing the same thing, you are much better off bet/calling or check/calling then 3-betting everything.

Re: Interesting HU Razz 5/10 Hand

I agree that if i raise everything pre then he is ahead of our range on 4th. We obviously 3! with the intention of getting maximum value with the current best hand. However, range wise this is why I am unsure of whether x/c is better. At the time I obviously decided 3! best action but betgo, if you dont mind elaborating more I'd be quite interested to here your thoughts on whether or not b/c or x/c is better and for what reasons.

Finally the reason I ask is if his call 5th is objectively bad is because it seems he is drawing very thin against my 3! range on 4th, yet villain has one of the most impressive HU razz SnG graphs I have seen to date, while I have recently transitioned to razz from NLH so it is very possible that I am missing something here about his call.

Re: Interesting HU Razz 5/10 Hand

We're 57/43 vs any unpaired cards 6 or lower that the villain has, so definite equity advance to push. The villain's raise has to be objectively bad, which implies they're not a talented razz player or thinking about it really on any level at all. That would make me want to push all the equity I can and not be concerned about what they'll think of my range on a later street. Granted I'm not an experienced razz player myself but 3bet turn 100% sounds legit. Even when we're in our worst case scenario down cards, we'll have a much better shot to take down this pot with future bluffs plus we could turn into a winner even in the worst case scenarios.

Not that interesting a hand til 7th imo. Maybe a call because he should sometimes pair the ace but its such a bad spot to bluff hero can maybe just muck and move on.
