      My question is not really hand specific, but rather general.
      How do you decide in these situations between floating and checking behind turn? I have showdown value, and I'm ahead most of the times against Villain's overcards.
      Protection is not a big issue against 6 outs, but if I check behind all my showdown value hands in these situation and float with all the airs/draws, than my range is quite unbalanced, and a thinking reg could know that I dont have a hand when I float, and I have a made hand if I check behind, so he can combat me with checkRaising turn if I float.
      Or is balancing not that important against average regs on micro/smallstakes?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I'd Bet the turn of course and protect my hand from overcards. :) Even if we have showdown value we don't want to see an overcard which wont be possible to Call.

      Best Regards.
