      Hello samlar,

      At some time we have to take stabs on the opponents if we want to play such hands profitable as we Called preflop and if they tend to bet very weak it's a good spot to Raise but the case is that if they Call you have to give it up on turn. So just Check/Fold turn.

      Best regards.

      Hi samlar!

      Preflop: I like call IP and try to induce multiway pot with blinds. If you have a look on MP1, KQs is at bottom of his range (assuming he is not maniac ;) ) and playing to PS SHC.

      Flop/Turn: If he missed or have TT-KK, betting turn might be viable option how to get him of hand, he is not mostlikely going to fold TP to just 2 bets and for that you would have to shove river (and that would be costly).

      Therefore I like checking behind. If you have read that he is folding most of the time on flop, then you can cb on turn and fold to river bet.

      Regards
