      I guess i can bet the flop bigger.

      On the turn. Is it better to just bet or ch/r is ok? I can get more money vs. his strong hands by check raising and get some value from his floats?

      Hi Achilles,

      I agree with your play here. It's odd that he bets the turn so small and it looks like an inducer bet or small cheap stab. So I like our bigger raise but I'd just ship river.

      Since he bet/call he is most likely on a draw or slowplay and draws fold the river almost always. And some of his slowplays might just call.

      Hi.

      Do you think that he is betting the turn like that with draws (no showdown value)? I thought that he has either slowplay or some kind of medium value hand (pair or pair+draw). I thought that he will call a big bet with one pair, but might fold a lot more to an overbet?
