      Annoyed here to be honest. He c-bets like I expect, then check/minraises the turn. I cant help think that he might be doing this as a cheap bluff because he'd previously seen me call c-bets and take pots away on the turn. I'm probably overthinking it and he has some sort of overpair hoping I'll stack off with top pair, but I cant beat much anyway except a very creative play with 2 overs. Meh.

      Out of interest? what is optimal here? should I always be betting the turn? I feel like if I check back the turn he's betting every river and I hate to call. That might be better than getting check/raised on the turn though?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Better thing is not to float at all with those kind of hands, our plan preflop was to play for set then keep it this way. :) Just fold it on flop. Otherwise Bet/Fold turn.

      Best regards.
