      Hello malcolmlinco,

      Well, the problem on the turn is that you ain't really getting called from a lot worse and I doubt that you are making any made hands to fold as QQ/Jx or whatsoever. So your only hope is that you make 99/TT to fold.

      Vs such a player I'd even consider just Checking behind the turn and not value-town myself.

      Best Regards.
