      OTT, do i c/c to induce a bluff, or was my shove okay, its a weird situation where i think ive got the best hand most of the time here but its hard to get value off worse hands, however the problem is its a fairly wet board and hes probably got overcards at the very least or a draw so i dont wanna give him a free card

      Hey,

      If you shove, you have to be very sure if he calls draws and/or worse hands. If he only calls you with 4x, 9x , you are basically just giving him the money with 5% equity

      It is the same with checking; you have to be sure he is bluffing or semibluffing. I am more inclined to check/shove than to shove myself. Otherwise I am betting smaller to keep his range wide

      So against an unknown where I don't really know where I am would you check/ fold the turn?
