How big of a hand do we need for value betting? For how much can we bet? What to do on a raise? How important is our perceived range?
You're in position, on the river and your opponent has checked. To bet or not to bet? That is the question.
From the cut off, you defended pre flop with AQ against a raise from under the gun. You flopped top pair on AT8 two tones and you called the continuation bet. The turn brought a possible flush with a 4 and was checked. A king landed on the river, and now your opponent is betting pot. What shall you do with top pair top kicker in that situation? Four options: raise all in for value, call, fold or raise all in as a bluff?
