      his stats are 5/3 thru 60 hands...this guys a nit and I felt horrible about the call on the turn, after i thought to myself " he either has AJ, AK or a set" and i was definately folding the river after realizing I beat nothing in his range once the jack fell. it was a split at best and surely he wasnt trying to bluff me off any hand. Next time check fold turn for minimum loss to these nitty players who rarely bluff and have such tight ranges.

      Hello ilovemagic,

      Don't turn your hand into bluff-catcher and rather Bet/Fold the turn yourself for protection and free showdown.

      Best Regards.

      see, the thing is i was thinking before i checked/bet the turn that i was already beat. i couldve check folded the turn and river and wouldve been extremely pleased by doing this against a guy who only plays one out of every 40 hands. the only thing he couldve had i was beating was a draw, and he doesnt play draws or aces with weak kickers so how could bet fold turn be a profitable play against THIS player?

      Well, tell me how can then Check/Call be profitable if Bet/Fold ain't. :)

      In situations that you know that you are beat i think the most profitable line is check/fold.

      That's a stupid excuse! Really, I am usually not saying any critical words but this is really a stupid excuse. You are turning your hand into bluff-catcher and can easily be bluffed on the river, what you gonna do on river, Check/Fold?
