      Villain is a 23/18 reg. My cbet is std, but where do I go from the turn? Go for protection or pot control?

      Hello Schelles,

      Well, if you CB the flop then also means we should be 2nd barreling the turn for protection & value instead of turning our hand into bluff-catcher whilst it will be difficult to Call him down.

      Best Regards.

      What worse hands are calling? There aren't even much FD's, maybe only KQs, we don't know if he CC's A2s-A5s. + I think he can just call a set on the flop.

      The CB is obv already thin but it's the main goal of it is to protect our equity vs 2 guys I guess

      You don't want to start Check/Calling 2 streets either whilst he could easily just do that against you. Why would you Check/Call the turn & then Check/Fold the river for example on a blank?

      I think its extremely abusable line: if I bet IP and PFA c/calls, its always second barrel for me with any two cards.

      I think the hand is played well. If you know that the opponent is a regular floater, you could c/call turn AND river.
