      Hey veriz,

      23/20/273h reg.

      Lead or ch/c?

      1) Lead -> I didn't do it , why? Because nothing worse callt.
      Now I think lead is better because we still protect our equity + we build a pot for ones we hit.

      I like a lead better in this case:

      1. because V has position, we want to take the initiative with our draw

      2. we didn't 3bet pre so we need to show a little strength so we don't get bet off the hand

      3. V may have nothing but we get value from 4 straight, smaller flush draw

      4. we can further reduce V's range and control pot size with a turn bet

      5. All depends on V's fold to cont. bet stat

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Bet the turn yourself and gain fold equity, you don't really have implied odds for Check/Calling there whilst also being OOP.

      Best Regards.
