      I raised him on the flop, because the flop is very drawy. But what is the good turn play here? Checkbehind and see what will happening on the river?

      Hello Nocco88,

      Well, do you think he would pay you with a lot worse hands here on the turn? He will have pretty hard time Calling with a lot worse while already any 6x gives a straight.

      Myself I'd Check it behind there since we block a lot of 2pair type of combos with our 88 but of course if you expect him to overplay any kind of overpairs there and which he might Call vs your shove then it's fine to play it this way as well.

      Best Regards.
