      Hello everybody :)

      Here's a hand I played last session.
      Preflop: pretty standard i think (~4xbb+1 per limper)
      Flop: Easy cbet with my 2 overcards+gutshot+nutflushdraw. About 3/4 pot seemed right since it's 3way.
      Turn: Not a really good card, but he didn't raise, so he probably doesnt have a monster, so either my A or Q should be good, maybe both. That gives me at least 9+3+3 (FD+gutshot+overcard)=15 outs, so about 30%. That's enough to call a almost potsize raise with on the turn, so I figured if I would call such a bet, I could better be betting myself so I still have some FE from a Tx type of hand or a draw. Or would you rather go c/c?
      According to his stats he's kinda passive and a calling station, so by checking I could relatively often get a free showdown.

      So, on the turn is c/c or b/c the best option?

      Hello PewPewPoker,

      Against that kind of opponent I guess I would just Check it on turn. Don't think that he would show any aggression there anyways while he is rather passive guy. Also I don't expect to have much fold equity either.

      Best regards.
