      what range do u see villain raising with from utg? and hows ur equity on that flop vs his range. why do u call the flop and fold to a blank on the turn if villain bets small again? if u call the flop, which is probably ok, folding to such a blank on the turn to such a small bet will cost u tons of money longterm. calculate ur equity, then decide whether he might be able to 2nd barrel ak or aq for example on such a board and if u decided that these hands are still in his range, what equity is needed on the turn to call.

      another question is, if u call the flop, what cards r u going to call to again on the turn if he bets? or is ur intention to fold to a bet from villain in every case? what do u do if he checks the turn and on the river comes a jack? do u play check/call, bet/call, bet/fold ... ? answer these question and u will find out whether ur call on the flop is good or bad, and if u call whether ur fold on the turn is good or bad.

      Hello noulispa,

      Turn 2nd barrel is pretty weak so I would still call him down and reevaluate the river. While his CB on the flop was super weak I might even prefer to donk the turn and protect my hand + of course avoid him Checking behind.

      Best Regards.
