      Hi.

      What is the purpose of the Turn bet? You might want to think about that. Are you bluffing? Are you value betting?

      Thanks.

      Well I think you don't have a good reason to bet here. If you want to bet for thin value vs smaller pocketpairs and maybe for a little protection, a smaller bet makes way more sense. Something like 25% of the pot to just fold out their random overcards or maybe even get Ace high or lower pairs to call.

      With such a huge bet you basically isolate yourself vs KX or better. I doubt he actually calls 2X-77. And I think it's clear that we don't have value.

      Betting for free showdown is also not a good reason to bet here. It's not free, because you paid for it on the Turn. Checking on the other hand may get you the free showdown if everyone continues checking one more time.
