      MP checks, Hero?

      Hero gives up on a blank turn with an intention to call a smallish bet on a blank river?

      Hey German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: looks fine

      Turn: Hero bets the turn 1/2 pot or so against the few weaker Ax hands and draws with the intention of folding to action or checking back river if villain just calls and cks river (as he would do a lot).

      Of course this is based on the fact that I see 0 info on the guy other than the fact that he overlimped.

      In that game Hero played turn as you said, but when another A came and the villain checked, Hero thought that he's a hero, betted, got min-raised, 3-betted lying that he has a FH, got 4-bet-shoved, called because he's a fish and spewed away his stack :f_biggrin: This is so disgusting that I decided not even to post this part here.

      Yep, I see why bet/folding turn is a good idea on such a board.

      Thanks, Bogdan :)
