      Hello maheepsangari,

      Bet the turn and protect your hand! :) But otherwise not much to comment.

      Best Regards.

      I did think of protection but if I bet turn and get raised again I'll be forced to fold and turn my TPTK into a bluff, woudn't that be wrong?

      Why would it be wrong? Kinda obvious that we would be behind then. :) We want to protect vs his Check.

      Yeah you're right I should have bet/fold the turn.

      If he calls my bet on the turn and the river isn't a :heart: , would you go for a check behind or a thin value bet?

      Both options are possible. :) Even betting for value cause I assume he has a lot of Kx hands which may pay you.
