      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 8 :heart: 7 :heart:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40
      Plan: If he checks behind turn, I donk river.
      If he bets, I fold.
      If I get a draw, and he bets, I x/r.
      He basically opens too wide, and cbets too much to realistically have a strong range.

      Turn: ($1.45) 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.80, Hero raises to $2.79

      Hello,

      Preflop defending is fine.

      So, in order to do this on the flop, we have to know how much he cbets on the turn.
      He does cbet a lot, but AJx hits his range well and we would have hard time playing on the later streets even if we hit the draw so I'd rather just fold here.

      As played, following the flop plan, raising his rather small bet is good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I think most villains on NL10 with a cbet% this high will have Ax (or better) when they double barrel this board. It's not a good card for him to bluff at. A c/r might get him off weak Ax, what's his WTSD?

      Not a big fan of this plan on this board. Would rather do it on a Kh62 type board.

      He 2ndbarrels 33% of the time.

      Well, we all know, that ch.c flop, ch.r turn beats 1 pair. His toppest range is 1p.
      -->He folds. I mean, he opens 50% of cards from the BU, dont tell me that the A "hits his range". You could say this to any card.
      Even if he DOES have an A here, would he call a ch.r with A2-4, 7-9 here?

      But does HE know, that raise on turn beats 1p :D ? That's the question here...

      Well, do you expect him to bet the turn with weak Ax when he has so low cbet there?

      Also, what will your value range be on the turn when taking this line - JJ/AA are 3bet preflop, AJ is 3bet most of the times as well, then we are only left with 55 and some A5/A6 or so.

      And the main question here is why do we want to make our like tough by taking these creative lines, without knowing our opponent very well? I mean, this is NL10, we have 150 hands on him and we are planning to call the flop with a couple of backdoors OOP, and then plan to check raise the turn (where he cbets only 33%).
      Also, there is quite a good chance that we are going to be overflushed when we check/raise the turn.

      If the turn goes check/check we will have to fire on the river where we don't know really how he plays his hands and how much fold equity we have.
