What do you think about the way hero played here? This was a very draw-heavy board, so I thought I’d try something a little tricky. I know that the more conventional thing to do is to just barrel, but I figured by checking the turn, the villain will probably take a stab at the pot with all his draws, so this will give me a good opportunity to check-raise all-in. My assumption was that the villain would bet this turn with 100% of his range, so I wasn’t too worried about the turn going check check. I also thought that there’s a chance the villain will fold a stronger hand like QT or KQ or even AQ, given how strong this check raise looks. Thoughts?
