      Hello theguy,

      That's kinda close but I often times if I am planning to continue here then I am just shipping directly on turn and playing for stacks, doesn't make sense to Call and Check/Call the river. With getting in on turn we might as well get Called from any kind of draws. Although I guess I'd just fold it when we are against a very passive opponent, against some aggressive ones you might as well consider getting it in there. We still kill a lot 2pair type of hands.

      Best regards.
