      Hello conall88,

      Well, I don't understand why do you turn your hand on turn into bluff? I doubt really that you are making any worse hand to fold or even getting value from a lot worse. According his 2nd barreling size and spot it's even pretty close. Do you expect him to 2nd barrel with draws? If rather then then at some spots I might even give up or either way just Check/Call the turn and reevaluate it on river.

      With Check/Raise the turn you are isolating yourself against very strong hands.

      Best regards.
