      Hello dannywratten,

      Rather make the decision right on the turn than Call the turn and fold blank river. :) I would most likely rather just fold it on the turn without any reads. Of course FD completed but what do you expect him to be 2nd barreling there like that which made a small bet on the flop and turns bigger on turn?

      Best Regards.

      Ok thanks veriz, on the turn i just thought CO can still bet turn with worse Ax, especially if he likes to open any suited Ax from CO, but when he instantly bet river w/o thinking i must be beat often

      good insight as always from veriz. I never thought to fold it on the turn. but it does make sense. the call on the turn means you should technically call that river if he bets like half pot size or less, because the river doesnt change a whole lot in your opponents range. but folding the turn seems even better. waste less chips vs unknown range that way. im learning to fold those average strength hands a bit more now the more i lose with them. after watching the bronze article about playing post flop without the initiative today, it makes a lot of sense to either fold the hand on the river, but even moreso on the turn after hearing veriz's insight.
