      Hi,

      I just have 15 hands with villain and his stats is 27/7.
      I check behind Turn for pot control because I think he may call on Flop with FD.
      How do you play this hand?
      Thanks.

      Hey,

      So you say by pot controlling you are going to call a Riverbet or bet yourself hence getting 2 streets of value.

      Then I rather want to bet the TUrn for free showdown as I still get value from Ax (not anymore when the river is a 4th for example) and he turns his hand face up when he c/Raises you :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi Gerv,

      Bet turn for free showdown may be good but I worry that villain may c/r Turn or c/c Turn then dbet River. By check behind, we dont worry if villain c/r Turn and villain dbet River.

      I worry more about Villain playing perfect on the River as we do not know if he bluffs 100% or only valuebets when turn goes check/check

      Worrying about random dbets and c/r is not really an argument if you think that when he does something like this, we are mostly beat anyway

      Best regards,
