      Hi Nemorut,

      Would Villain call your Turnbet with a lot of worse hands? We have Toppair no kicker ourselves.

      For me I think the Turn is a check back despite us having Toppair, our kicker plays an important role here. Therefore I do not think we are betting for value there but more as a bluff

      So when we check back the Turn, we can call a riverbet or bet the River ourselves for value as we get looked up lighter in general

      Best regards,

      i didn´t have enought information about that player, he was new for me, so i played that hand by the chart _top pair>bet/fold ....but yeah as u said its more bluff-like bet than bet for value, but if i had just check turn he would pot-bet me at river _and am not sure if i could call it even if ace or eight would come, he could easily had an KQ but maybe its only fear that i need to overcome
