      Turn: ($20.75) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8, CO raises to $19, Hero?

      I check flop to induce, bet small on the turn to induce also or to get called by some marginal hand, if he calls i jam the river to represent some missed draw. But when he raises the turn im not very sure if i should ship it or just call. I think i like more the call because i expect him to bet flop with draws and on the turn with draws he might just call or raise bigger, in the end i think he wont have that many draws here so i call to let pure bluff on his range (AJ, SC, PP turning into bluff).

      I would usually bet small all my range on the flop there, including AK. A small bet can also induce if you do it often which is my plan but it also allows me to barrel or shove whenever I want, I don't depend on my opponent.
