      27/19, 31% agg.freq., 20% river agg., fold to Cbet 33%(6) 121 hands

      Is it better to bet the turn and bluff some rivers if i get called? He won`t fold better hands, but with a ch/c turn i`ll have a hard time on the river if he bets.

      As palyed, i`m not sure what to do on the river...


      I didn`t saw the positions... Perhaps i should either bet turn and good rivers or ch/f turn?

      Turn: You can c/c Turn if you think he has some flop floats with stuff like AJ or KQ. River would be kind of tough to play but you'll have to check and decide again.

      I don't like betting the Turn cos there's hardly any value - Unless you think Ace high calls again. I don't like turning 66 into a bluff, there are a ton of better hands to use as semi bluffs such as AX or KQ - They have better equity as you have 6 outs vs mid pocket pairs.

      If he is more or less passive or straightforward, then you can c/f the Turn
