      I'd probably take the free card on the turn. Doubtful you have much FE on the turn against a guy like this after he calls your flop check/raise.

      utg open + cbet freq are crucial here.
      anwyay w/o info i dont rlly like c/ring flop even though or equity w/ called is pretty strong.
      basically the hand youre traying to make him fold will cback turn and fold to river bets. also we mite have the best hand a decent amount if villain opens 15%+ utg.

      your line makes more sense if we expect villain to b/call a depolarized range otf like KT+, 88-QQ and fold to turn and/or river barrels.

      and as played i think i bluff the river as he has close to zero 8x. we dont either but i expect him to fold Kx, AA to a big river ebt. and thats the biggest part of his range as he prolly get it in w/ sets/2p earlier in the hand.

      Hello staktas,

      What kind of hands do you try to make to fold on the flop with Check/Raise? Whilst his UTG range often times hits such a board?

      Best Regards.
