      Hero (UTG): $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 51970

      BB: $14.46 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 20, CallOpen: 25(12), 3B: 7, AF: 1,2, Hands: 45

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :spade: A :heart:
      Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) 2 :diamond: T :diamond: 5 :spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, BB raises to $1.80, Hero folds

      I sort of thought that villain was a TAG reg and against such guys it is OK to bet 2 streets with this particular hand that still has outs. But now I guess that villain may still be classified as loose and I should maybe just check the flop and give up.

      One question though: even if I decide to go for the cBet on the flop (which I guess I shouldn't), is it still possible that I look at the turn and maybe conclude that my bet on the flop was not good and that I don't really have enough fold equity against this guy on the turn either? It is a bit counter-intuitive and speaks against my bet on the flop but maybe it is wiser to just admit the mistake on the flop and just give up on the turn. At least I would imagine that I should definitely give up if the FD completes.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Doesn't really look like a TAG. :D And after we get called on the flop without any information I'd rather be Checking behind. Why would you want to 2nd barrel whilst yo might not have even that much equity vs made hands?

      CBetting the flop is still fine, although I'd rather do it to gain us a free card on the river and skip the 2nd barrel without even knowing him. And those stats are irrelevant for 45 hands by the way as CallOpen or whatsoever.

      Best Regards.
