      Our opponent is a fish.

      The question this time - does it make sense to bet the turn? I thought it did.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Rather bet yourself the turn to avoid turning your hand into bluff-catcher and do it for free showdown. He definitely has even worse hands there while he most likely is loose enough for it.

      Best Regards.

      Did I miss something?

      We are OOP so technically we are not betting for a free showdown. And I did bet the turn!

      You asked a question? Didn't you? I answered, you should rather Bet yourself and betting also the turn can be done for free showdown. How? We Bet practically the turn and Check/Fold the river if he is betting himself? Or how would you Call it? :)
