      Standard play on Turn is to check when the board didn't change and we didn't pick up additional equity. If you have good reads on his tendencies (low fold to F cbet, high fold to T cbet), then you can consider barreling Turn.

      But it's almost always a check in most situations here, 76s/54s are improved by this card and pocket pairs are still not folding unless you intend to fire River too.

      question about playing higher stakes

      I can win on 25NL and earn money,but everytime I try NL50,I just keep losing.
      I keep my BR so if I get enough money,I play on NL50,and lose and come back to NL25.

      is there anything I must change to beat NL50?
      I feel on NL50,they are so much stronger than NL25.

      should I just keep trying NL50? or should I keep playing on NL25 and post difficult hands that I face on 25NL ?
      which is better?

      Just move up if you think you are doing well enough. You should consider getting coaching if you are constantly getting destroyed at NL50. I do think you have significant leaks to be honest, from your posts. So you should think about getting coaching.

      I think you play too weak and passive in many spots. Try to improve your hand reading, and attack weak ranges with multi barrel bluffs.
