      This guy is Nit over 100 hands, not sure about my Turn play I thought calling would be good because I have left then a PSB I can easily shove on the River but it is still quite a big scary bet?

      You do note that your line is almost the same as shoving the Turn right? You are OOP and ultimately, CO is still being faced with the same decision - He has to call another 3$ left.

      I think I would just jam it in on the Turn because I feel like most players are strong here when they raise.

      Then again, I don't there's a single card which kills our action. If a Q falls, KQ would have a lower boat. If a T falls, KQ would have a straight. The converse is true for KT. but still I don't really see any point in taking your line as opposed to just jamming the Turn.

      I also doubt he raises the Turn with a flush draw, so I think there's no point trying to let him hit on the River by calling the Turn.
