      Hi.

      What do you think about villain's range for raising the Turn? If you think he only has flushes and straights here, this is a pretty easy fold. If you think he could have some air, you probably need to call. But on the river you need to ask yourself the same question and make the same decision on whether to call or fold.

      In my opinion I think this guy should be very often following through on his bluffs so we either bet/fold Turn or bet/call Turn check/call River. Your line only makes sense if we expect him to shut down most of his air on the River.
