      According to the Potsize : my stack size I had to go All-in on the Turn.
      Any chance that I just checked behind on the turn and c/f on river? I don't see many outs for me nor FE if I pushed here.

      You can get a free card here, so you should take it!! Any :heart: or Ace is good. If you don't hit anything it's just c/f on the river.
      No need to invest another 10BB with only high card ace.

      I don't think 2nd barrels work good on microlimit, so just keep the rest of the stack for yourself if you don't hit anything. It will pay off in the long term.

      Hi Gerv,

      as dekuip and burek already said a bet on the turn is just burning money, check behind turn check/fold river unimproved. You will not generate enough Fold equity to make the 2nd barrel plus ev.


      Best Regards

      Could you explain this thoroughly with an example? I thank you a lot in advance.

      you have only half pot left
      so your bet has very low fold equity, for example you can never fold a queen there.
      so against a Q hand, cb is obviously better
      which i think is not always the case though, because Q will sometimes protect the flop (sometimes not, against a shortstacker)

      i am not that strict about checking behind, but in this case, against unknown, it probably doen't make sense to push
