      Tough spot on the turn. No reads on the villain. I think it's very likely that the Q hit the villain's range. Check/fold looks too weak, check/raise or all-in would isolate me against better hands, bet/fold is not a possibility as I'm pot committed already. So that leaves playing check/call. But check/call would almost cost me my full stack if he bets, so maybe I should shove myself in order to get the little fold equity that might exist.


      CO 43.18% 42.69% 0.50% 44+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo
      SB 56.82% 56.32% 0.50% JdJh

      What do you think? Thank you.

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, I wouldn't say tough spot. :) If you are doing the 3bet for value preflop then you should also just bet the turn. Or one option would be to turn your hand into bluff-catcher which means Check/Call against smaller PPs which might fold to 2nd barrel.

      Best regards.
