      bet the turn for value/to protect from draws? I thought betting was overepresenting my hand and not much worse is going to call-in addition i have only a pot sized bet on the river so i will be pretty much comitted unless a spade comes..., my freind was like OMG u have to bet that turn when he saw this. What is your line?

      Hello matusko,

      Bet the turn as well since he may still hold some 1card FDs or something similar. Otherwise I'd definitely Call it on river since we somewhat induced him to bluff on turn. He could easily have a hand like AQ with A.

      Best regards.

      hello,
      thank you for your answer, if he raises the turn I should probably fold? and if he donkshoves a blank on the river?

      Yes, likely it's possible to fold it on turn. And when he donks after our bet on turn on river somewhat big we as well might find a fold for the reason our plan to bet the turn usually is to get free showdown and maybe even bet the river as well sometimes for value.
