      Hi!

      Villain is 23/20, AF 2.5 2.3 1.5, CBET Flop 36% Turn 75%(4), WTS 45%, EP OR 29%. Hands 294

      I decided to slowplay pre as his OR range from ep is so wide and there was also a big fish in the blinds. I think flop is standard as we should not raise because we somewhat only isolate ourselfs and fd presents only a small part of his range.

      Turn gets tricky as his low flop cbet and high turn cbet probably show he mostly bets only value hands. He didn't c/r turns up untill now. What can we assume it means?

      I made up some range I think is quite possible with his high EP OR. It shows us we are flipping and I didn't include some pure bluffs (mostly cuz nobody ever bluffs in this spot). Problem is that I think most of players only c/c the turn with a NFD or 2nd NFD.

      Board: 7d2d6h4d
      Equity Win Tie
      UTG 49.85% 49.26% 0.58% { JJ+, 77-66, 22, 65s, AdKd, AdQd, KdQd, AdJd, KdJd, QdJd, AdTd, KdTd, QdTd, JdTd, Ad9d, Ad8d, Ad7d, Ad6d, Ad5d, Ad4d, Ad3d, Ad2d, AdKh, AdKs, AdKc, AhKd, AsKd, AcKd, AdQh, AdQs, AdQc, AhQd, AsQd, AcQd, AdJh, AdJs, AdJc, AhJd, AsJd, AcJd, AdTh, AdTs, AdTc, AhTd, AsTd, AcTd, KdQh, KdQs, KdQc, KhQd, KsQd, KcQd }
      UTG+1 50.15% 49.57% 0.58% { KK }

      So if we call turn river bricks and he shoves we must call cuz otherwise we should just fold flop.

      Or is folding turn direct far more superior esp cuz we have no solid reads?

      Okay the more I think about it the more I should just raise flop get it in and play according to my EQ cuz I am ahead on this flop vs his whole range so I need to play for value and I do need to protect a bit.

      We raise flop if he calls and diamond hits we check behind or fold to his donk bet.

      Hi,

      Not sure if players open 100% their pp-s UTG. if they would fold 22-66 then you have easy raise for value and getting all-in against his draws and overpairs.

      But if you want to keep his hand range wide, then calling is also fine on the flop to let him barrel both turn and river.

      I would b/f turn, since I haven´t seen players c/r turn as semibluffs and most of the times they tend to have there flushes

      Best regards,
