      I called his steal raise preflop and was going for floating on the flop. He 2nd barreled the turn and I tried to represent a 9. He called but then checked the river. Is it better to fold on flop or turn? As played, could I try to take the pot on the river?

      His stats: 19/16/26/82/100/5,7/239 (VPIP/PFR/Steal/CB/Fto3b/AF/Hands)

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hello Alleen86,

      I often times don't like floating A high boards but of course it's doable. Although there is no point to raise on turn, it just made you less likely to have the big hand there, rather just give it up.

      Best regards.
