      villain playing 26/18, 5.9 AF 33 fold to 3bet 3/9

      on turn, since villain isnt folding to 3bets often, do we check/raise to let villain bet floats/hands he would fold to turn bet?

      or do we just keep barreling since board is so coordinated?

      Hey Y,

      Do you think he has actual floats here that can bet? I would expect villain to usually have a hand with showdown value. I favour betting here although I like the idea to check/shove against some. What I would also do different is probably bet a bit bigger. The board is very coordinated, it hits his range and also you are a bit deep so you need to bet bigger to leverage stacks easier.

      Thanks manu!

      i guess what i meant is that he wont have a ton of pure floats, but can have lots of pair+sd, fds/etc. do you think most villains would check back those types of hands on the turn, or would they be more inclined to bet?

      Actually I think this is type of boards where we have to cbet more, because we really represent strong range. I would cbet here about 8 bucks for protection and for value, and would do so with my bluffs.
      And the turn I am still bet-calling here.
