      UTG checks, Hero ???


      Preflop I didnt want to go broke vs an UTG range.
      He misses this flop very often, I could easily have the best hand, so I was considering turning my hand into bluff with a raise, or calling, maybe trying to float later. As a raise wouldnt represent much here, I decided to call.
      What do you think about this turn raise? Sizing should be bigger? I have the nutFD + 2 overcards, and without a good TP at least he will have a though time to continue. He could call if he has a draw, but then I'm mostly ahead with Ace high anyway. If he shoves, then it's a tough decision...
      After he called, would you valuebet this river?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Turn: You still have to raise it bigger on the turn to represent at least something and gain some fold equity.

      As played
      River: Well, do you assume he is capable of hero-calling you? Cause you kinda turning your hand into bluff on the river if he doesn't have a loose calling range and nor you don't have a loose image on the table. JT also got there. So if it's even a value-bet then just $10 or something similar.

      Best Regards.
