      BTN's 24/18 (40 hands), looks quite solid and also steals quite a lot. He is likely intimidated by how I played on the table so far.

      Would you ch/r Turn (and thus possibly take a free card) or rather bet/fold, as I did?

      I was quite LAGgy at that table so I see in BTN's calling range on flop loads of draws, PPs, or perhaps overcards. They were eager to outplay me.
      Ch/r turn would make it hard for him to continue with PPs and lay down his draws, right? If he checks back we get a free card and probably give up UI.

      Let me know what you think.

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Check/Raising the turn doesn't make sense and of course which would be overplayed anyways. Rather 2nd barrel it which gains you almost the same fold equity as Check/Raise. With Check/Raise you just donate more money into his pockets.

      Best regards.
