      MP 62/11 after 86 hands


      Preflop enough implied odds to call with a tight raiser plus a huge fish very likely join us.
      On this dry board I didnt want to lead, nor chR, so I ch/called the cbet (which will never be light here), and hope that the fish will stay with us.
      On the turn I didnt have any better idea than this lame chRAI... :( He would definitely fold TP/overpair to this line...
      Would be better to ch/call turn, and donk river, so he could talk himself into herocalling with AA/KK? On the other hand any 3/6/8 rivercard is killing the action...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Check/Raising the turn is pretty bad idea, you are rarely getting action there and therefore either Check/Raise the flop or just Check/Call 2 streets and ship the river. Or another option what we could pick is to donk the flop right away and get value from Qx hands or whatsoever hands, maybe even induce raises sometimes.

      Best Regards.
