      Hi, OR is 14/10 reg with 100% fold vs 3bet (~200 hands), and the coldcaller is a random guy 27/5 on the sample ~30 hands. He is playing 1 table + some SNGs so it's rather a weak player.

      My hand is quite decent for squueze I think. 1st I have CRE, it's suited so even when called I can hit some flops and have equity or have some backdoors which I can barrel on F and T plus A9s is a value raise vs this weak player since he can easily call worse hands preflop.

      So anyway I hit my FD with some straightdraw backdoors and 1 over. Since the guy has a wide range I cbet as semibluff. He can fold some higher Ax or PP 22-55 or even overcards which is not that bad after all. As he can push me of the best hand in 2 barrels or smth.

      The question is, should I bet the Turn? It's rather a blank. His fold to cbet is 0/2 and I think I made a mistake to check/call (I called because of the odds) instead of bet or x/jam.

      Hello preludiumm,

      Don't like the Check/call on the turn at all cause you don't have the implied odds nor you wont come up with profit in long run with such a play. If you CB the flop then I am almost always 2nd barreling there as well.

      Best Regards.

      If he calls our 2nd barrel and that river comes down are we going to bluff or just give up? Personnaly I'd give up cause his range will be already stronger cause he called 2 barrels.

      Depends once again on the opponent but mainly planning to give it up.
