      Hi,

      Well at the turn do you think I should risk my stack with just a mid set,
      since there's a lot of better hand like straight or higher sets?

      thanks,

      Hello cpers,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      I wouldn't even bet the flop. But rather just Check behind and be happy to see a free card. They wont Call with a lot worse hands there anyways.

      But as played the turn, guess there is not much to add. They may easily even have worse hands like 2pairs. Although if taking into account MP1-s W$SD then it's huge and wouldn't be surprised to see from his side very strong hand. That might be as well the reason why I would sometimes even consider folding be safer while being a bit deeper. And we will anyways see his hand.

      Best regards.

      Hi veriz can I ask one more thing.
      When in a deepstack do you think we should target other deepstack or just
      find some smaller fishes?

      If he is a bad deepstack which is often even the case on those limits you can easily target the deepstacks as well.
