      BB checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($0.65) T:diamond: J:club: 6:spade: 8:club:

      BB bets $1.93 (AI), Hero folds

      BB wins $0.62

      71/18/1.5, fold to cbet 43, hands 121

      note: calls 3bet with AK, calls cbet when didn't hit on low flop

      Player who does not like to fold that much. But I still have GS and overcards and he should have some trash very often. He should not fold any pair, so I could bet only for value. I should get calls from some draws. Against KQ for example I have 72%, against 99 I have 40 %, so overall its good, this should be a cbet for value and protection imo.

      I would just bet planning to get it in. He has at least a pair or GS ~68% of the time here. But you have 40% vs most pairs, are ahead of draws, and still get him to fold 30%.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Nah, I doubt that your play is wrong here. If we bet then we also have to consider playing for the stacks so you could as well just ship it on the flop for the fold equity. :D But overall as he is passive we can easily just Check it behind and very often even see Check from him if he doesn't have a hand.

      Best Regards.
