      Hi,

      I would played the same way. He can have there worse hands that he would c/r turn or some semibluffs. Two pair is strong enough hand to play for stacks quite big pot.

      Best regards,

      Hello Holidej,

      What worse hands do you expect to raise on the turn? You just beat bluff there anyways, if he had any kind of pair he would already have raised you earlier. ;) So I'd Bet/Fold it on the turn. :)

      Best Regards.

      Hm, interesting, two different opinions :) Well, I played like that because against his high WTSD and even higher VPIP I saw myself ahead... I think he would pay me with TP, lot of players like him do that, and bet/fold simply was to nitty... Though against good player definitely bet/fold is right choice.

      If he had TP then he would most likely raised earlier already to protect his hand. :)
