Re: 1/2 Tilty V

We really want to be blocking value here and we arent doing that. Only need to call 37.2% of hands to not be folding too much.

Do we ever have better calls like QT/QJ? Wed probably have the nuts as well if we had those.

But yeah I think Id rather call like J9 than AQ.

Re: 1/2 Tilty V

Villain's line reeks but it's also a line splashy villains use when they think they have the best hand or back into something on the river. A villain with KX is probing on the turn, when nobody raises or seems that interested in the hand villain thinks their KX is the best hand. Villain could also take the same line with JT, now the turn bet is setting a price, seeing if anybody cares about the hand and setting up for a big value/bluff on the river.

I would really need more information about villain. Can you read anything into his overbet? For some villains it's a bluff too often, for others it's trying to get value from a small pot a lot. What position did villain call from and what does that say about his range? How is he tilted? Is he playing too wide and aggressive preflop or is he bluffing too much post flop?

I lean fold just because it's an over bet. Hero doesn't have to call very often to make a profit. I could easily end up calling this though depending on what villain is doing.

I don't know if it is simply my inexperience on this forum or what, but I'm having a very difficult time following your hand histories. For example,

The CO limped and then Hero bet 30 from the BTN, SB or BB. It matters. Are you OOP or IP the rest of the hand? Later in the HH, it sounds like you act first, but it sure would be easier if we didn't have to do detective work to make assumptions. A little more info would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.
