      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.30, 5 folds, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) 9, 9, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, MP2 calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.55) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.80, Hero raises to $3.35(All-In), MP2 calls $2.55.

      River: ($8.25) 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.25.

      Because our play is so predictable ie. pfr->cbet-> c/f turn unless we have TP+ I have started c/r the turn with overpairs. Above is an example.

      Any comments?

      btw We know villian missed the board.

      Hey mineriva,

      I like the c/r on the turn, however it has to be against particular opponents. If you know villain does float a lot or is very aggro then c/r is fine, but against unknown opponents I would still prefer to just bet out myself because against those you will lose value from 8x and PPs and maybe hands like QJ if you don't bet out yourself as they will most likely check those behind.

      Btw, if villain is likely to bet against a missed c-bet, but unlikely to continue on such a dry board you can already consider check/raising the flop so you get some value out of his air he is unlikely to call flop c-bet with.

      Best regards,
