      BB unknown.
      BTN pretty spewy 38/25/12. 35 WTSD, Agg 31% (54) fold to c-bet 25(4).

      Nice flop. Decided to make life easy on flop and raise. On the turn, in afterhand I suppose betting small/checking to inducemight be a better line?

      Hey,

      Why does raising make your life easy? What does that mean for you in terms of ranges, EV and dynamics?

      On the turn, I think you have a hard time getting value indeed so betting becomes a bit marginal but if have to go from flop assumptions you have. What were does apart from easy life? It's OK that you shorten your thought process but when you go deeper you must know what 'making life easy' means for you here.

      Well both BTN and BB seems like weak players so sure when raising I avoid some more marginal situations when I miss on turn but also I expect both BTN and BB to come along with a lot of their pairs/draws/combodraws here when i raise on the flop, which I should have very good equity against with my nutflushdraw + gutter&overcards which may or may not be good.

      What do you expect them to fold, what do they call and what do they 3bet flop with? Give them an approximate range for that.

      BB is probably fish so I think it's fine to raise and stack off vs him, he will continue with a lot of crap. If he was a 100bb probable reg than I think the risk of isolating ourselves against a range that has a lot of sets, plus the benefit of induce something from aggro BU when we call makes it a call imo.
