      Playing on Muchos Revolution, the guy at UTG was 79/26 over 21 hands. This guy was a big calling station. C-bet the flop without thinking about him being a calling station (my bad) but then when I hit the two draws on the turn I figured I should double barrel and build the pot, so I could push all-in if I hit my draw. Is this the correct play, or should I slow down when drawing on the turn against a calling station?

      Hi MbJuk,

      Preflop:looks fine

      Postflop: I agree that cbetting here half pot into two guys is just terrible.

      As played I think that you can just put UTG in. It doesn't make sense to bet to build the pot because you have almost a pot size bet left anyway (with BTN) and a lot less with UTG. However our combo draw gives us 9+3 outs for a total of about 25% odds and we can be confidant that we are almost always behind on the turn.
