      $50.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      SB: $49.25
      BB: $95.63
      Hero (UTG): $49.30
      MP: $28.86
      CO: $66.42
      BTN: $50.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG with Q :spade: Q :heart:
      Hero raises to $1.75, 1 fold, CO calls $1.75, BTN calls $1.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($6.00) 6 :spade: 6 :heart: 8 :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $4.00, CO calls $4, BTN folds

      Turn: ($14.00) A :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.00, Hero calls $8

      River: ($30.00) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $25.50, Hero folds

      BTN 23/19 reg


      After calling on the flop with one more opponent behind him, CO range could be mainly PPs (99-JJ) and monsters (88/76s/65s).
      What would you play on this turn? As there is virtually no draw on the flop, it's almost impossible for him to float here with Ax (A8s, but I doubt he would coldcall that preflop), so with a turn barrel I could scare away middle PPs, and trips/boat beat me anyway. Is check/call turn, check/fold river a good option here? CO could take a stab at the pot with a weaker hand once, but it's quite unlikely that he would turn his PP into a pure bluff on the river...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I wouldn't say that he can't turn something like 77 into bluff here. :P Especially while he is more aggressive side so it could easily be the case.

      What do you think he is flat-calling you with A8? Doubt so, cause he seems to be more picky with the hand, SCs? - doubt so, 66/88? - not that likely cause it would give him QUADs. And as you said you would assume he isn't floating you with Ax. So the hands as played plays the way it played and should be Check/Call on the river > Check/Fold if you turned into bluff-catcher.

      Best Regards.
