      check/call is a very terrible plan and you should not be results oriented. Our hand is a complete monster against his turn calling range, he has AT/QT/JT/T9/JJ/QQ and other flush draws, maybe he has KJ and KQ as his flop floating range as well.

      As played, it's a bet/fold because this guy probably has KT or a set here, given his stats and the fact that such players usually raise the Turn only with the Nuts. A pity that we are giving up on our monster equity but we are essentially drawing only to a Flush Draw here.

      Hello BGawli,

      As long his range is so wide and consist of a lot worse holdings and not only strong made hands I would definitely 2nd barrel it for value. But usually what you should be doing and our plan should be is that we should Bet/Fold it against his raising range.

      Best Regards.
