      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $68.65 (137.3 bb)
      BB: $45.37 (90.7 bb)
      MP: $28.20 (56.4 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T T
      MP calls $0.50, CO folds, Hero raises to $2, SB folds, BB raises to $5.50, MP folds, Hero calls $3.50

      Flop: ($11.75) 9 4 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $6, Hero calls $6

      Turn: ($23.75) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($23.75) A (2 players)
      BB bets $11.75, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BB played 26/18 after 130 hands, AFq 31, cbet F/3b-T 43/33-100(1/1).

      Turn? Betting wouldnt accomplish much, mostly fold out his Ax/other air hands, but a chRaise would be awful, which I could get even from FD+over type of hands...

      Hi Pcf,

      you should definitely bet the Turn yourself because you have the best hand almost always. I don't give people credit for checkraising Turn. With 2 flush draws out, you can very easily pot control 9X 88 77 TT (like you did here). He can very easily have some 9X hand which he 3betteed light preflop and could now c/c the Turn.

      If you are afraid of facing a checkraise, I suggest you just bet 1/3 of the pot. This way if he jams you can be more confident in calling it off (because there's a really good chance your small bet induced something).
