      Preflop: Call IP fine? I figured he's stealing quite wide there so should be able to take it down IP fairly often even if I miss. Don't see any reason to 3b, but may consider folding this spot in future given the problems it has presented me.

      Flop: He's c-betting frequently so I think he can c-bet as a bluff/semi-bluff/value here. I'm obviously not folding the flop here so its between r/f (don't expect him to bet/3b worse) or call and re-eval turn. Chose the latter as I can't be sure he even b/c's QJ/QT or FD's.

      Turn: Not a good card IMO JJ/JQ improve here as well. When he barrels the T I think I have 2 options: call and re-val river or fold. I'm discounting raising since I don't think any worse hands b/c or b/3b-broke here.

      I still beat QT and some bluffs/semibluffs.(I think these are possible given villain's AF) This is the main reason I am calling the T here but my only plan for the river is to fold If he empties the clip.

      Therefore I think that I am best off folding the T to the 2nd barrel here. What do you think?

      i dont think folding turn here is a good idea. villain is only betting 1/2 pot on each street, and i would assume that made value hands in this spot would bet much bigger on such a draw heavy board.
      villain can have so many sd's/fd's/pair +gutshot/Jx etc.

      just wondering what hands you would call turn with in bvb pot in this spot if you fold KQ?

      Hello muel294,

      No way to fold ever for the given odds, so I like the idea of going for way ahead/behind. Another option of course would be to raise the flop to protect.

      Best Regards.
