      Against his range I thought that a cbet on flop is not the worst move. On turn, the hand improved and I saw a good opportunity to fire a 2nd barrel. When the villain raised me though, I wasnt sure that my hand improved that much, and decided to fold...

      Hello faronel,

      The problem here is that the board is just so ugly for us. :( There are even flush possible, straight possible, sets possible. And few combos of 2pairs which we beat. If we want to continue on turn then our plan will be practically to ship it right on turn.

      But can we expect the opponent to play this way his worse 2pairs? And even if we add some 2pairs into his range then we still are most likely behind and it's close to break-even. So folding there is totally fine and not investing your whole stack and with less variance.

      Best regards.
