      Hey nemorut,

      You are in fact out of position here but I do not understand your Turnbet at all. Is it for value? as a bluff? It would be appreciated if you would write some thoughts about it along with your hand history!

      For me I just check/fold the Turn, this card hits his calling range a lot since his calling range evolves around J8x

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      i was thinking about that bet as a "block bet"(semi bluff), i had played it instinctively (am not new to poker, just to midstack strategy) i found that concept at your strategy section too, but unfortunately it is in bss, probably concept of "better to bet, if you wanna call" its bss too (?) :f_confused:

      yeah about that position....of course it is OOP :f_p: /epic fail emote

      A block bet mostly constitutes you still want to get value from something. I highly doubt that you are facing worse hands a lot of the time

      At the same time I also think you cannot bluff out your opponent a lot because the Queen strengthens his range

      So once again I just give up on the Turn

      Best regards,
