      Hi guys,

      Do you think I should call turn with a TP? He is either playing 2P strangely, or he has a draw.

      River fold is out of question?

      TY

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: looks fine

      Turn: one thing we learn at the lower limits is to bet/bet/bet for value until we are told otherwise.

      This is a perfect example of "we are told otherwise"

      Against unknown, possibly fishy/passive opponent we should bet/fold. He rarely raises a weaker hand and you may be faced with a river shove given his stack so unless you prepared to call down based on reads simply fold.

      Okay :f_biggrin: Great, I'm a perfect example of how not to play. I must admit that you are right, at least because that session was a total disaster :f_frown:

      Bogdan, so we basically always fold a TP to a minraise on turn? (without any reads)

      Isn't it...too much? We need to be ahead in 19% cases to start making profit here...

      Short answer: Yes we fold a lot in these spots.

      Don't forget that you are looking at the odds on the turn WITHOUT considering that he will bet the river a lot. So what happens to your odds there? You have to put even more money in.
