      BB stats 54/4 AF:3,3 Turn AF:4 River AF:6 fold to flop cbet:0(2) after 27 hands.

      Pre flop: standart open vs fish in SB.

      Flop: dry board, decided to x/c, because BB looks aggressive, of course samlpe size is very small.

      Turn: after he checks back flop I think I have the best hand here, so I bet and BB min raises. I think he has air or slowplayed monster and hands like 75s, J7s.

      What line is best with medium strength hands like middle pairs on dry board vs such opponents?

      Hey,

      I think pre and flop are fine. On the turn I woudl continue with your plan to bluffcatch because it's hard to get called by worse when you bet anyway, your hand is worth one street of value usually.

      When he raises the turn I would usually fold. The problem is our hand has no redraw and our opponent will not only show slowplays, but also hands like 77, J7 like you mentioned and some KQ, QT type hands some of the time as a raise for thin value and then to also get a free showdown.
