      Should I be raising the turn?

      Should I be doing something different in general in the hand? I feel that I should be folding when he leads if I am not leading myself on turn?

      For some reason it felt like I was outplayed by the river.

      Vilain in 100 hands sample is:

      :heart: raising 25% UG
      :heart: VPIP 13%
      :heart: PFR 12%
      :heart: Flop cbet 60%
      :heart: WTSD 30%

      Hey,

      There's a really short explanation: You have a bluffcatcher on the flop vs UTG. To raise it you need dynamics where he spews, else raising is very very bad. That makes turn play very read based and you lack those reads.

      Thanks Emmanuel,

      Given that he has a quite wide range UG couldnt it be the case that I am ahead on the flop?

      Should I then be c/calling once and c/folding turn if I dont improove or plainly just c/fold flop?

      What is the right play here?

      Thank you,

      Nick

      You could be ahead but his range is not that wide to go crazy with weak 'value hands' imo.

      Plus you only have 100 hands on him and he plays really tight overall.. could be just that he ran good and got hands UTG. With a solid sample of UTG raises you can argue different line but not yet imo.

      Regarding turn play when you call flop, still just a bluffcatcher so would check to decide based on card and opponent's sizing.
