      Bet flop and x/f turn looks weak vs this guy.

      When he raises turn I don't think I am in great shape, his agg freq is not that high at all.

      Maybe I should've just bet flop and

      If you are not willing to check/call a blank Turn, you are probably better off checking the Flop immediately.

      The turn raise is kind of weird. He either reps 88 or some sort of turned draw like T9 or diamonds. He seems kind of passive though, so that means that his Turn raising range is weighted towards sets or J8s.

      I don't think the decision is that clear-cut but probably wouldn't mind a fold too much as this guy just seems to be more of the cally type of player and not the aggro type.
