[NL2-NL10] K8s button steal flops TP

      I made a steal raise from the button, flopped TP and decided to value bet the flop and check behind on the turn (both for pot control and to induce a bluff) and call the river.
      Can I fold that on the river, after he doesn't show action on the turn? Or do I have to bet the turn against the possible str8/flush draws. It's not too drawy a board, I guess?

      Hello graefe78,

      Going for pot control and as well if the opponent is aggressive enough then inducing bluff is totally fine and I like your play if you somehow knew the opponent. Although when against station then you can just bet the turn as well since he is capable of Calling the turn as well with even weaker PPs.

      Best regards.
