      20/19/inf, cbet 71 (7), 85h

      It looks like I canot get value from anything except sets which are not too much in his range.

      Ok, maybe AsJs is paying me. But still he should understand that he is behind vs a raise, he is vs sets.

      Even AA is folding here. He does not beat anything almost, amybe nut FD+pair. BUt there are almos no Jx pairs in my range, except AJs.

      Maybe to slowplay and hope he bluffs on river?

      Heya,

      I dislike raising the turn quite a bit because you only rep strong hands imo. I would sometimes raise flop with some funky image because nobody believes a raise on that board or call down, no raise apart from possible river raise. You should win the same vs sets regardless and you will be so far ahead that you kind of want him to catch up a bit since that will still leave him quite behind.
