1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

Eff stacks: $300
Villain image: passive Asian man
Hero image: TAG young reg

H opens $12 MP with 66
V calls $12 CO
BB calls $12

Flop ($34, 3ways) is K64r

BB checks, H bets $15, V calls $15, BB folds

Turn ($61, HU) is 6
Now I have quads and there's a flush draw

H bets $40
V calls $40

River ($133, HU) is 9
Flush misses, board is K6469

H ???
(We have $233 behind)

Do we go for a x/r on the river or is it better to continue barreling? And what size do we choose?

Re: 1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

Why x/r if you think the villain is passive?

I probably push, passive villains like to pay me of with good TP/two pair type of hands in these spots, but then again I usually have quite a LAG image. Push or 80, I guess.

Just size for a K, maybe a touch larger considering he called 40 ott, 70 or so.
You have no option other than to value bet players with no bluffs.

Re: 1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

Casually say "Same bet, $40" and put it out hoping to get called or raised. Shoving makes no sense to me....never called often enough especially by a passive player.

Re: 1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

Shoving is ridiculous. Whatever you bet [for value] if he struggles before calling, you priced it just right. If he snap calls, you didn't bet enough. If he folds, you bet too much.

That's a very results-oriented way of thinking... remember that I'm playing against a range of hands, not a specific hand, so however he reacted to the bet I made in this specific instance does not determine how good my bet was.

Eg. If villain has a busted straight draw, then checking is best, but if villain has AK, then a large sized bet is best.

6bet me's response to my post is further evidence that jokes online do not work.

I totally agree. This is excellent analysis. Only a terrible player calls a shove here with this board if they have top pair moderate kicker.

You can't check hoping for a passive player to go for value here.

Bet between 90 and 160 into 133.

233 is too much to jam and is going to cause him to fold a lot of KQ/KJ type hands.

I bet you guys are never bluff jamming this river, though.

Re: 1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

I would pot it on the turn assuming Villain is pretty stationy, which would make the pot $180 with $210 behind on the river which makes for a much more reasonable river shove.

Re: 1/3 - Quads on dry board OOP

Don’t get attached to your actual hand, just think about value. Like if you bet $70 here with KQ and get tank called by KJo then you played the hand well right? Same thing. Don’t think you always have to stack people when you flop sets/flushes and you will make a lot of money.

Before I get countered, I realize we *should* be thinking about stacking people a lot (for example my flop bet would have been $23 and turn bet 75%, but still, I’ve had some monstrous sessions where I just value bet 60% pot all the time and never stacked anyone.
