    Hand is yucky.One he calls the turn, he's either decided he's calling you down with a pair or he's chasing a one card flush, which he hit. I'm not sure about river, because only then (you would think) a good player would not call without an average club.I would've been petrified about betting this river unless a non club King or Queen hit.

    I'm checking the turn and hoping for a free river, player reads like a calling station whos not going away even with as little as ace high (open limp the button, calls the flop. I don't know what hes folding on the turn which he doesnt fold on the flop). Even if hes only got A4, you're still done.Change ur hand to a big ace high and I bet the turn tho as you're beating hands those hands he might call down with such as that A4.Then again I've been getting called down by ace high in 5/10 6 max for ages now so maybe I'm a little gun shy with KQ

    If you check this turn, you are surrendering the hand.Unless you know the opponent, bad advice.

    Nathan is right - if you check out of position HU at 5/10 Party - 85% of time, you'll be facing a bet. Checking is surrendering.Many of the 5/10 players are really flop loose and turn weak...i.e. they'll call a lot of flops, if you continue with strength, they'll let it go on turn. If you show weakness, they'll fire - it's a fairly basic weak strategy, but can be really annoying. It forces me to overplay out of position sometimes. On the flipside, you can utilise it pretty effectively with check-raises when you have it. Unfortunately for me, I have it once for every ten times I don't, so...Having said that, I think this *might* be one of the few times where it would be ok to surrender and check. I'm waiting on Mike's/Van's thoughts, but I think they might agree. When he called the turn, I was praying for a club, cause I figured I had to be behind once he called. I knew a club gave me a 50%(?) chance of taking the hand. Is this good logic? Maybe even better than 50% chance?yoyo

    I don't think it's good logic at all. You assume that the guy is gonna lay down on the river cause there are 4 clubs if he doesnt have a club. I am not questioning any play in the hand, just ur happiness at a river club. If that was me in the hand behind you (I realise it's not and he might be worse / better / different), but if it was me, a holding that calls on the turn means a call on the river 95%+ of the time with the club coming out.

    Hmmm interesting - so I'm overvaluing the chance of taking the hand when the 4th club hits. yoyo

    My initial post:"One he calls the turn, he's either decided he's calling you down with a pair or he's chasing a one card flush, which he hit."Note one should read once.Pokerbok has just basically backed up what I had initially posted. I personally think once the opponent calls the turn, he is calling a GREAT majority of the time if he doesn't hit a high flush on the river, and even then he must CERTAINLY know that he is calling a bet on the river if a 4 card flush hits on the river itself.

    I play it by betting turn, folding to a raise, and check folding river if he calls. The turn is your last stab at the pot and when he calls it means he has a piece of the board and isn't letting go - usually a club or top pair, so putting in any bets on the river is spewing. Raising preflop, betting the flop AND turn out of position is quite a show of strength, and once called on the turn you can safely assume you're screwed. A river bet is pretty bad here, its only correct if he will fold a pair(which i guess he should have) but you shouldn't think so because its inconsistent with his turn play. Check-fold river yo.
