      BTN: $18.44 (36.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $51 (102 bb)
      BB: $62.63 (125.3 bb)
      CO: $51.60 (103.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K:spade: Q:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $2.50

      Flop: ($8) 8:heart: 5:spade: 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Turn: ($8) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero

      Thinking to check again to represent weakness. He have big AF i doubt i can take 2 barrels from some weak hand, so i dont mind to bet the river if he checks behind the turn with some showdown value. What you think?

      Heya,

      He usually is checking to give up on the flop imo, meaning if you lead the turn you make him fold air and get called by Qx only. Knowing this it looks like a check to me to bluffcatch. It's a card he can represent, he will vbet any Q as well so you get value from his value range and his bluff range.

      I think turn play depends on what level your opponent is at.

      If your opponent is a low-level thinker, he will just view the Queen as a scare-card since it is a high broadway card and take a stab at it.

      Checking would make more sense vs such a player

      If your opponent is better at reading hand-ranges, he should realize that the 4 cards on the board are really coordinated, and your preflop calling range should contain a good number of QX hands. Thus he would be very unlikely to delay cbet on the Turn.

      I am leaning towards a Turn bet, not only because I would be stabbing here really often, but mostly because I just want to go for immediate value vs 8X 77 66 type of hands.
