      Raise the turn for value? Call the river? His small turn bet and big river bet doesn't make sense. I was about the call the river though.

      Hello ragney,

      Since it's kinda far ahead/far behind situation I like the Call on turn, we likely will make him fold his worse hands and also bluffs. While he could easily trying to trap us also. Therefore ain't wrong to take the pot control line, otherwise river is sadly but rather a fold. :( He wont take such a line with a lot worse that often, unless we have some good reads or proofs for that.

      Overall, sometimes I might even consider raising turn but more often I would do it against such opponents I know that he ain't trapping us or anything like that.

      Best regards.
