      Preflop action is good.

      Flop, I would also check. The board is draw heavy.

      Turn, I would re-raise to $2.3. His min-bet indicates a very week hand, probably air/draw. If it's a trap, you will know if he 3-bets you.

      If he calls after you re-raise, then you should be careful on the river. In case he donks (and I doubt that, with the T coming) you can fold easily.

      And check behind river, for showdown. Because every hand that you beat will fold to a bet, so you can't get value from betting.

      And you probably will have the best hand.


      Hope it helps :)

      Btw, by re-raising on the turn, you make stronger hands fold.. like a pair of 7,8 or T and maybe a low PP.

      If villain calls turn after you re-raise and a draw completes (A,9,J,6 any heart), then donks river, you can fold.

      The only hand to call a reraise on the Turn, imo, is J:heart: Q:heart: .

      @Gabinr1

      Thanks for the input. I like the reraise on turn as well, IF I could make stronger hands fold.

      my read was that villain was a station/monkey, who'd make some odd moves, but not back down to aggression either. In this case, I felt I probably had the best hand, and chose to call down rather than move at the pot.

      I really need to get Elephant WORKING on my computer, so that I can share the stats of villains with you guys, and get even more input on different approaches to hands and opponents.

      I think you can also raise turn, since he only min-bet turn and might take b/f for example low pp-s.
