      My flop plan was to go broke with my nutFD+overs. After BTN coldcalling (slowplayed set would be weird from him 4way, maybe flushdraw/TP/overpair?), what would you play on the turn? My equity improved with the gutshot, so with the given stacksizes my plan was to check, and either get a free card if he checks behind, or play chRAI with my equity + fold equity if he stabs. He tanked almost a minute before calling... :)
      What do you think?

      I think I would be very cautios against BTN coldcall. Against a fish whos range can be some random FD's, Tx I think it might be fine. I wouldnt disount sets here. Maybe villain thinks it looks to strong to 3bet you on the flop and just flatts, who knows. If we give villain a range of all the sets, maybe JJ, and some FD's were actually behind on the flop and quite behind on the turn.
      It really depends against what villain you're up against.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Disagree on going broke on the flop, you are capping villains range so hard there and unless he is a huge fish you wont really see that many weaker hands. Mainly what go broke against you are sets and vs that your equity ain't enough.

      I'd rather Call the flop and keep other weaker draws in the pot and let them level themselves to pay later on. Though as played I'd rather 2nd barrel it and reevaluate the further actions, doubt that we going to achieve that much with the Check/Raise, we ain't making there made hands to fold most likely what ain't folding to 2nd barrel.

      Best Regards.
