      Villain is a regular but I don't have a large sample on him... We played just a few hands.

      Do we B/F the turn?
      Do we X/C the turn?
      Do we B/C the turn?

      Why please? :) :)

      Hey,

      I'm not 100% sure and brain is a little frazzled, so will take another day and get back to you tomorrow on this hand. Left it in red as a reminder ;)

      Reads? Does he bluff much?

      I think we have to bet Turn for sure. 2 flush draws are out, we want to barrel all our flush draws. And I think he doesn't fold TX or 9X given that K is paired and 2 flush draws are out. So much value to be had. KJ is too strong to be used as a bluff catcher.

      So bet/call or bet/fold?
      Bet/call against someone capable of bluffraising or semi-bluff raising the Turn. Generally people who fold very little on Flop and float really wide and raise all sorts of nonsense.

      I think vs most NL50 regs, bet/fold is the best play. If you make a healthy-sized bet, I see no reason why people would randomly attack your turn bet with weak hands. QJ got there, KT now beats you, and you lose to KQ and K9 as well. I don't think K8 and K7 is going to raise the Turn (does he even have these hands preflop? He wouldn't if he's tighter).
