      Thanks :)

      Hi Aingles,

      I prefer betting the Turn myself if we were to continue in this hand. The reason is that a second barrel gives us another stream of income namely the chance your opponent is folding on your bet. Check/calling is essentially the same thing without this folding

      That said I prefer to bet myself on the Turn which is an all-in :)
      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Before anything, let me thank reriz for moving my thread to the right sub-forum.

      As for the hand , I would just like to make a question . On the turn I have 2 overcards and a flushdraw . Is this enough to fire another barrel , as the 8 on the turn could have completed a possible straight ? Also the MSS Basic Charts says that I should check/fold flushdraws and overcards on the turn .

      Hey,

      Please click the Button ''Let the Judge look again at this thread :) ''

      You have a qualified combo draw on the Turn, furthermore what straight hit here? Would JT call the Flop as easy as 65 or T6? Not many straights hit in my opinion therefore I shove the Turn

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      The villian played in quite fishy way, I had seemed him play any 2 cards and in this actual hand had T6 . Thanks for your help and I will certainly take this into account .
