zoom. villian is unknown.
when will I be able to convert nlo8 hands?
anyway, I have 13$ and open HJ to 0.35$ with A
CO and BTN are deep but fold. blinds are rather shallow stacked.
SB also folds but BB elects to defend. BB started the hand with 5.23$.
Flop (2 players, 0.75$ in the pot, 4.88$ behind): 7
villian checks, and I decided to check behind, planning to shove over a likely turn bet by villian.
here's my reasoning:
1) SPR equals 6.5, which puts me in a weird spot if villian check/raises.
2) I thought I'd do better against villian's turn betting range (after I check behind on the flop) than against his flop check/raising or even check/calling range.
3) the old fashioned - wanna make the last aggressive action - thinking. I'd love to see villian bet/folding the turn. I'd hate to get check/raised on the flop.
4) betting the flop isn't for value. it's not really a bluff, either. I do get to fold lots of hands with substantial pot equity, though...
I think it really all comes down to SPR. if SPR is 4 or less, I bet/call. if over 10, I probably bet/fold. 6.5 is really in the middle, at least it feels like it...
