      Poker Stars $10.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players

      MP: $13.13 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 17, 3B: 7, AF: 6.0, Hands: 29
      CO: $22.45 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 20, 3B: 9, AF: 2.5, Hands: 119
      BTN: $4.50 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 16, 3B: 8, AF: Infinity, Hands: 108
      SB: $10.05 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 8, 3B: 4, AF: 1.7, Hands: 12212
      BB: $5.15 - VPIP: 50, PFR: 25, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 8
      Hero (UTG): $11.41 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 3.9, Hands: 146701

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with J :club: J :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) 7 :diamond: 3 :diamond: K :club: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.90, CO calls $0.90, BB folds

      Turn: ($3.05) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.10, CO folds

      Should I be protecting my hand here? My plan is to protect from flush draws, some straight draws. He would also fold out 99-JJ.
      + Sometimes it works vs. player who would float.
      He bets IP 2/3 = 66%. Who knows?

      Overall plan: bet/fold turn for a free showdown. (although I have no idea how this free showdown stuff really works.) Does my overall range isn't too weak on the R, when I check? I guess, whenever I check there it's a fold very often, because I would not check/call or check/raise there mostly.
      Then I would check/fold R a lot.


      EDIT:
      If he's pretty straight forward, when flats, then probably he has very less flush draws. Like 2 = AdJd, AdQd.
      So he mostly folds out hands like JJ-99, AdJd, AdQd on the turn. Smaller PP's on the flop.
      Sets he doesn't have on the Turn.
      So i think that's how his range should work vs. my bets.

      Thanks.

      Hi,

      on flop it is allrigth i gues. But on turn it is close if go for check/call or check/ fold. But what i can say is that when you raise here u are just turning your hand into bluff because no worse hand is calling you.

      Hello Anger86,

      Overall seems to be fine as long you went for a CB on the flop and protect your hand. Time to time he may even call with some PPs there like 88-TT and of course FDs on the flop and maybe even 7x.

      Best Regards.

      Hi,
      I agree. I made a mistake, when I said he wouldn't call with 88-TT. He will call with those.
      Do you think he has some 78s or 67s in his pre-flop flatting range?
      I don't, because I rarely see Villain's flatting vs. UTG so light. [EDIT: 28/20 - but, who knows. He easily might, if he has 8 pts gap between PFR and VPIP.]

      Is it OK to bet T for value and protection here?
      That's what I did. Bet/fold T for free showdown.

      Totally, I mean he could even have worse PPs which may pay you and at the same time maybe even draws. So our plan is to Bet/Fold it and most likely reevaluate it on the river but usually the idea of betting the turn is for free showdown.
