      William340 lost $1.02

      I really did not know what to do here. obviously.
      my call a raise & check/fold the turn is horrible, I'm sure.
      here's my problem - I have NO idea what he could have on that flop I should be worried about other than 22 or 33
      but the only choices seem to be
      1) he thinks my C-bet is bullspit and he is going to push me out
      2) he has a big hand and wants to play for stacks

      but usually when I decide that the villain has nothing and then I get stacked w/ TP.
      of course, I don't know why I call his raise either, because I am afraid to lead out on the turn.
      if nothing else, I need to plan farther ahed than : call, then pray I hit the turn.
      I guess it's WAWB and if I am way behind, I'm drawing very thin.
      the 2 on the turn changed nothing.
      if he had a set, now he has quads or a boat, if he had nothing, he still has nothing.

      what do I do?
      should I stack off w/ TPGK on a 23Q2 rainbow board?

      Hello William340,

      Don't really see how you can ever Bet/Call & Check/Fold on the turn profitable in long run. The 2nd "2" was a very good card for you, made his hand just less likely to have a set. Therefore I'd definitely continue there or either just Bet/Fold the flop.

      Best Regards.
