      I prefer bet the turn. There're still FD & SD which will call us.

      I also prefer betting the turn to get value from draws and checking behind on the river.

      In this spot, you look too weak, so he could have bluffed on the heart with any two. (although in this spot, it looks like he got there to me).

      Hello Yellowteea,

      You should be rather Betting the turn and protecting your hand than just Check/Calling it, why would you want him to Check behind or even pick up the sizing himself for the fold equity.

      Also you should be asking if there is even any point to Call in first place vs UTG here cause he ain't even fully stacked and is rather tight.

      Best Regards.

      Thank you very much for your opinions.Rethinking the hand after the session i guess better play would have been betting the turn and c/folding to any agression after it.
