i draw 1 he pats, i pull a 9. Check, he bets
tought spot given history with opponent, do we just hold on and call down or draw to better?
If you ever plan on “holding down” I think you need to instead be aggressive about it and c/r flop, assuming they call, pat and bet down instead. This is dependent on how many bets they have left as well. If they raise your flop c/r, d1 and hope to make a 7 and fold turn unimproved.
Otherwise d1 turn and river try to make your seven.
Again I could be wrong and I’ll say if Death Donkey replies his advice is correct.
But until he gets in and says I’m wrong (which is usually the case
) that’s how I would have played your hand.
Also, how do you know they don’t know how to value their hands, what history can you give from previous hands to verify that statement?
