      cbet 2 streets OOP JJx on turn w GS vs fish

      I was prepared to fold turn, but the note says that he can be bluffing. Also on the turn his aggresion is getting higher by stats.

      Folding river because aggression gets lower and Ax gets there, also there are some flushes and Qx in his range.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      You are correct that you should be defending a little wider against this opponent. Calling wider with marginal hands is one way you can solve the problem. In reality a better option is to bluff-raise turn more often, and trap with bigger hands more often.

      I think just giving up turn is fine. If I wanted to defend here I like the unorthodox line of turn merge raise. Sometimes you fold out Qx, sometimes you get called by A. Vs a 3bet, easy fold.
