      I dont know how to describe the meaning of the stats in terms of if the players a TAGy or LAGy in 6max so until I do Ill just post there stats unless I have less than 20 hands.

      On the Turn I decided to Check Behind because the board is so harmless and I thought I would be able to get more vlaue on the River.

      Turn: You should only slowplay when you think your opponent is very unlikely to have a strong hand. I'm not going to say I hate it but I also don't think it's that necessary.

      Examples include flopping a fullhouse on a broadway flop like KKQ, or flopping top set with a high card on a rainbow flop, like AA on A72r. On these boards, the top card is high, so you are unlikely to get multiple streets of value from underpairs. However on an 8 high (or J high Turn) Flop, I think a hand like 77 can very easily call 2-3 barrels.

      River: You were meant to lose all your money, so that's too bad.

      In Short: It's better to slowplay when you crush the board and villain can't have too much. I think on this board villain can still have many midpairs, and some JX floats like AJ/KJs.
