      BTN: $5.49 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 1, 3B: 0, AF: 5,0, Hands: 74
      SB: $10.00 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 5,0, Hands: 71
      BB: $10.30 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 20, 3B: 5, AF: 0,0, Hands: 56
      Hero (UTG): $10.66 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 56532
      CO: $7.21 - VPIP: 28, PFR: 15, 3B: 3, AF: 1,2, Hands: 74

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q :spade: T :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.35, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.35, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.85) 8 :spade: 9 :club: 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.85) 3 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.88, Hero folds

      I am not sure about turn play in this example. It looks like a somewhat standard 2nd barrel because of our outs but is this particular villain with the strange VPIP stats really floating us on this board all that often? I guess that we still have to just 2nd barrel, although I am not sure we have much fold equity on this turn card.

      His stats are indeed on a tight side.
      The only thing u could consider is: does he have any fold equity if u push on turn holding double gutshot?? If u think he doesnt , than is it a good fold. I think he doesnt because he already put in $1,73 and he might think he is comitted even with the hand as A7.

      So its a good fold on turn. And its'nt a bad 2d barrel. According to his stats he missed flop almost everytime.

      Wow, I didn't notice I have a double gutshot. Then it just simply is a must 2nd barrel with our equity. I can't believe I didn't see that. I am disappointed in myself.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Instead of just going for a Check/Fold on the turn rather 2nd barrel it if you decided to CB.

      Best Regards.
