      My opponent was a calling station. I made my cbet, he called and on the turn I realised that I have a middlepair, gutshot and a flush draw so I have to go allin. Bad play, right play?

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      According to the start hands chart we are checking back this hand on the Turn because if we think logically: villain has mostly a hand that is either a flushdraw or toppair on the Flop so what that means that even if you hit your flushdraw on the Turn -> you are mostly behind

      Even though you have 4 K, 4 9, a lot of and 2 queens as outs, that is still a meager 30-35% equity

      So once again I would check back this Turn
      Best regards,
      Gerv
