      Villain is unknown, on flop I put him on Ax or FD. On turn I was not willing to give up the hand with TPTK, but did not want to commit myself either, I thought some Ax might still call me or even fold. checking would have invited a bet from anyone even a float would have been probably more expensive. However I did not like the spot I was in. Was the near PSB on flop ok? should have I check/fold the turn because FD completed?

      You can bet $2 since then you have more manoeuvring on the Turn.

      Since the A is already out there are less combo's of Flushdraws persé so I would be more inclined to bet/f for value. I fold if he shoves because he is rarely if not any turning Toppair and/or a naked 1card flushdraw into a bluff.

      Best regards,

      I am not clear on you answer, do you agree with me that he is unlikely to bluff or do you think he is likely to bluff. As for the FD completeting I think there are a lot of SC that would have called the cbet and would have played the turn as he did.

      He seldom bluffs the Turn
