2/5 Turn decision with AK

No villain reads, just sat down, unfamiliar faces.


Hero- AcKc- UTG +1 is effective stack at 1k



V1 limps
Hero raises to 30
V2 call
V3 call
V1 call

Pot 125

Flop KhJsJh

v1 Check
Hero bet 45 ( I normally wouldn't bet this small multiway but a paired board is one of the few times I will do 1/3rd bets)
V2 Fold
V3 Fold
V1 call

Pot 215 - Turn - KhJsJh6c

Hero bet 100
V1 raise to 300

Obviously I fold, villain shows a jack.

Is bet fold line the best line here or is checking turns the best line. Assuming villain never bluffs missed draws OTR.

I can rarely get 3 streets on this board and if he has a flush/straight draw I can only get value on flop/turn so I prefer to check river or bet very small on river for a crying call from a hand like k10/kq/k9.

Re: 2/5 Turn decision with AK

well played. turn is a good b/f, there are still many straight draws, flush draws and worse K's that we need to attack.

wrt b/f, you sound disappointed with the result but it is actually a fantastic result. when we b/f correctly we are absolutely demolishing our opponents. here, we lost the minimum with TPTK. think about it if we had AJs here and we raised turn (though maybe we pick a better sizing like 225) and opponent open folds AK - we're devastated.

I like sizing throughout the hand

turn decision is trickier when our V is capable of semi-bluffing with FDs and SDs but not as likely in LLNSL

Re: 2/5 Turn decision with AK

I think I bet a bit more on the flop but otherwise wp. B/f turn is a great result...can't think of a ton of bluffs in V's range on this board.
