      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, Q.

      Flop: ($6.25) 5, T, J (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.50, MP2 calls $4.50.

      Turn: ($15.25) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $11.00, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $15.25.

      Villain is 49/22, AF 1.4, f2cb overall 45% 200 hands.

      Turn should be a bet/fold? But why? I know he floats a lot according to his f2cbet stats and we should be ahead a lot of the time. At the time I didn't know he was capable of pulling huge bluffs.

      If I bet turn what is the sizing half pot, less?

      He showed Q7s

      I think I would bet just over half pot, the ace is just such a great card for him to bet on once you show weakness and you can fold if you get raised. He can have kts, kjs, qjs,qts etc etc so if he just calls your turn bet and river comes blank you can be pretty sure you are ahead.

      Hi,

      betting turn makes you hand easier to play and you don´t have start guessing if he is bluffing or not. I would balance out sometimes c/c turn, since they see check as green light firing most of their flop calling range, that is quite wide, so I like having there hands that can call him down.

      Best regards,
