      villain playing 24/20/2.7 AF over 1001 hands
      79 flop cbet, 33 turn cbet

      can we consider raising turn on such a wet board? not sure if we can raise call off without overplaying our hand vs particular villain....

      Flop is a fold without backdoor draws, unless he has something like a 70%+ range. Double broadways + flushdraw means that you get barreled off your hand so often.

      You cannot raise turn for sure. you are over-repping your hand as a stronger twopair or a straight and i don't see many worse hands calling without aggro dynamics

      Hello yougotfelted51,

      Don't really like the flop-call at all. His range hardly has you beat on the flop and even if you have equity you are really just calling for implied odds with your trips outs or overcard.

      Raising turn wouldn't accomplish anything besides that he continues with stronger range and all weaker hands fold.

      Best Regards.

      would 3betting this hand preflop be a good option? with a hand like this if we call the most we can really do is either hit really hard or end up playing passively.. surely A5s has good playability so we should 3bet it preflop either to profit directly from the times villain folds or to play aggressively and in position postflop?

      I do agree with mbml that folding flop is better.

      But what about river? I really doubt that this guy is going to bet a hand like AJ or KQ here so we are actually bluff catching?

      i think 3betting is a very valid option, however i had been 3betting villain constantly in late/bvb positions.

      in this particular situation i feel villain is 4betting with quite a high frequency, so i decided to flat and take the hand away post flop since villain bets flop and check folds turn so often as pfa.
