What would you do? #167 - Pwning myself?

I think I botched this hand terribly, but because he is such a passive player, I'm able to not hurt myself too bad.

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 7 players
The Official Hand History Converter

BB: $78.55
UTG: $65.35 - 50/20 / 100% steal / no other meaningful stats @ 10 hands
UTG+1: $53.45
MP: $24.75
CO: $63.15
Hero (BTN): $50.00
SB: $52.00

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with Ac As
UTG calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, 2 folds, UTG calls $2

Flop: ($5.75) Qc Ks Js (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $3.50, UTG calls $3.50
Anyone betting this flop?  I think this is definitely a bet / fold situation, but he calls behind.

Turn: ($12.75) 6d (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero checks
Definitely wanting to pot control here.

River: ($12.75) 7s (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $7, UTG calls $7
He's been so passive that he can easily have a Kx, Qx type hand looking to get to showdown.  I think I fold if he raises.  Is this a leak as well?  Should I be betting the river here?

Final Pot: $26.75
UTG shows Ad Td (a straight, Ace high)
Hero shows Ac As (a pair of Aces)
UTG wins $25.45
(Rake: $1.30)


  1. Betting flop is fine, I think, so is checking turn.

    I think I check river unless I know this guy plays 50% of all his hands and will call with K8.

  2. Yeah I hate your river bet...the board is really not one that will get value off of one-pair type hands. Having said that this villain is really weak passive and wow at what he has. In any event, his calling range absolutely destroys your hand.KJ, KQ are at the absolute bottom of that range given description of villain.

  3. I think the turn check is missing out on a ton of value vs someone who is likely a fish, just keep bet/folding
