      Preflop: No stats about the villain. If he's super aggressive and 2nd barrels often I even fold this hand preflop. There are too many overcards to our pair to play it profitable against aggressive opponents. Let's say he was unknown.

      Flop: His 3/4 cbet looks strong but if we called preflop, we must call his cbet. Against aggressive not thinking auto cbetters I would even c/r from time to time. There is FD out and we can expect overcards to our PP to come. We want to take it on the flop.

      Turn: This card changes nothing and he basically represents K or some PP. In both cases we're beat. We beat only FD but I don't believe he bets so strong on the turn with only FD. I think turn call is a very bad play. I can't find a range, we're 51% favorite.

      River: This is it. What exactly were we expecting on the river? If we called big turn bet we should call a river bet too. Thing is that on river we realize that we can't beat anything. Folding is the correct play, but we should do it at least one street earlier.

      I think you should fold on this turn. It looks nice card, but not for our hand, because there are many rivers that might help opp range more than ours.

      Hello Wacko118,

      I don't like that much the Call on turn. He is still 2nd barreling there but it also contains a lot of stronger PPs. For that given reason I don't really see many hands what we beat.

      Best regards.
