      Start of the session, don't know much about the opponents.

      I think that may play is fine. Was thinking about a stab on the turn but decided against it as villain is very passive and is probably still checking on the river often enough and I might be ahead, whereas he can be check/calling better hands on the turn as well.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Doesn't make sense to Bet the turn when you didn't Bet the flop. If you Check it then it means we planning to give up and nothing else. Or either we CB the flop.

      Best Regards.

      If the turn card was a good scarecard, for example a K, would our plan still be to give up on this board? Could we then not try a delayed cBet? Unless we know that villain is a complete calling station and is not really folding bottom pairs, of course.

      Well, do you think you make any made hands to fold vs a guy who doesn't even a full stack. ;)
