      I don't check for pot control on the turn. I do it because I probably have the best hand and want to c/r him.

      When relatively safe card hits the river I give him the range of 78, 65, K6, 6x, 5x, shove looks like bluff so he may call me with only one pair, since it seems I want to represent A here.

      Is it better to value on the turn or we can't expect 3 streets of value here?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, I guess I'd just Bet the turn, there are going to be still a lot of draws or even weaker pairs which may easily pay you, plus at the same time you protect from overcards.

      Best Regards.
