      Hi,

      Problem with turn bet is that it is very hard him to call you with worse hands, so although you might bet against 78s or 88/77 with heart I´d likely just check back and then consider calling his river bet (although if you´re ahead I think he would often also check river)

      Well, I don't really see any reason why we should Check behind and not protect from 1card FDs and then Call the river when we most likely will be never ahead vs his betting range. We either are betting it as you did and protect from 1card FDs which may be possible or either way just Checking it behind and giving it up. There ain't gonna be hand on river which are going to bluff.

      78 would likely bet river. But not really sure that TT/99 would always check river, so there is chance he would bet for value with worse hands, since seem like we don´t have anything or maybe AK

      Not an opponent who has AF of 0.8. :)

      at that case if we believe he would never bet river with worse hands I´d prefer betting turn to take my free showdown and protect my hand against medium pp-s that has also flushdraw.
