      Hey. I find myself often in this kind of a situation. On turn I got something that's too good to check behind, but also too weak if I get raised. BB's play signals strength, but I have to call due to odds and having a redraw, or am I mistaken?

      If bet/calling turn is fine, what should I do if I had K :club: Q :diamond: ? Thanks

      Hello,

      Uff flop is draw heavy (if this is right word), so you need to make big bet on flop for protection. Which cards will call you?
      I guess all straith and flush draws

      But on turn (4 :heart:) i will check.

      With K :club: i will c/fold turn.

      Hi Alesh,

      I like your thoughts. Probably checking is better since all draws arrived and I mostly isolate myself against better hands. Still, river will get tricky if he bets.

      Yea, but i just watch one of your hand where you fold (i will do the same after that stupid donk), but Gerv said he will never fold.
      So i am soooo comfused :D and maybe you did right.
      But with K :club: i will definitely check turn or fold if he bet before.

      Hey,

      Against this player + with your hand, I prefer bet/shoving more because I think he can also do this sometimes with non-flushes.

      Now when you have K:cQ for example, I think it is close because if we check back, we are guessing the river whether he has a flush when betting or just trash. So if you can figure that out often enough to make it profitable to play it this way, then I'm all up for it :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
