      Hey. Looking back at this hand, I think I should've mucked it preflop to avoid tricky spot like this one. But as played, is it fine to barrel turn? I think sometimes pockets could float me on flop. There is a flush draw possible on turn, Asxs can call once again. I'm check/folding river since I expect weaker hands checking behind and better Qx betting. Cannot tell if BB is capable of bluffing. Also I don't see point in 3 barrelling. Thanks

      Hey John,

      I never fold preflop because of his nitty tendencies. I think your thinking is flawed because it is more results orientated. Your EV is higher than 0 if you raise it preflop

      I don't like to cbet this Flop because you don't valuebet against this player. I am more likely to check/call Flop & mostly the Turn as well

      As played I will check/call once on the Turn and c/f River but you are mostly behind already as soon as he called your cbet, I don't think he floats often given his tendencies

      Ok. My biggest problem with this hand is lack of postflop skills, that's why I'm considering folding it preflop.

      What range would you open raise against this opponent?

      If you ''lack'' postflop skills, one should watch more BSS basic videos as you get the hang of postflop situations more as they are more present in those videos
