1/2 77 river decision

200 effective stacks
V is a bad mid20s TAG who limps too much and dotn extract max value.
I'm still new to table tho so im not really sure about his tendencies.

He's UTG and open to 10.
I call in UTG+1 with 77. Folds around
Flop (23) : 8910
He bets 15 and i call
Turn (50) : 3r
He checks, i bet 40, he calls
River (130) : 8
He checks, Hero ? (135 left)

Thank you

Check back and realize your SDV (show-down value). Nothing worse is calling and nothing better is folding, imo.

Re: 1/2 77 river decision

Your only bluff option is a shove and some of villain's calling hands made a boat when the board paired so you could be trying to bluff into the nuts. Check and hope villain missed a flush draw. You might get some slightly better hands like JT to fold to a shove but the risk/reward ratio isn't there unless you have a good read on villain's range.

Re: 1/2 77 river decision

Check back turn, check back river.....as played check river.

OTT: you have excellent equity you want to realize and not get re-raised off of.

OTR: as Garrick points out, you have showdown value and nothing calls a bet that's worse, very little folds out that's better. Your probably good here, just find out.

I'm not liking the call pre. But it depends a lot on table dynamics which you don't describe. I wouldn't mind calling the raise OTB or in the blinds - but you've got a bunch of players behind you and you'll need to fold to a re-raise.

As played it looks like an easy check back. Hope he called the turn with an AJ not AT.

Turn bet was unnecessarily large as well (unless you are specifically trying to fold out an overpair, which would be ill advised). $20-25 accomplishes the same thing (folds out overcards or makes them pay a bad price to draw).
