      CO 19/15 reg

      BTN



      After calling flop 3way, I dont think his turn raise would be a bluff very often (most likely a set), but I have the odds to call, and if I hit my backdoor I dont think he could fold to a river donk.
      Would be better to ch/call turn?

      Hi,

      I think there are not too much difference- you can take c/c turn and c/c river (c/rai river if you hit your 9 or flush, likely lead on A river) or b/c turn and then decide if he is bluffing or not. If you bet turn yourself then he may fold his marginal hands- if you check, then he may easily bet his 88/77.

      Since you raised UTG I don´t think he is trying to bluff you out too often, so b/c should be fine- If I raised any other position I would consider shoving (or at least calling him down), since it seems quite nice spot to bluff

      best regards,

      With his turn raise he's definitely representing sets. If you bet/call on the turn, would you shove on any river we improve, or check/fold on 9, A, 5, where we improve our hand, but are still beat by set / full house?

      problem is that we don´t really know if he is raising there with 55/33 or maybe J9s or maybe some air. I would prefer check even if I hit the river, since I don´t think sets would really afraid flush too often and it seems more likely you have there overpair than pair+flushdraw. Also he may then shove his air trying to represent flushes.
