      villain is 4 tabling, seemingly ok reg
      25/16/4.2 3b over 399 hands
      1.6 AF, 54/50 fold to f/t cbet

      on NL25 i would just bet/fold on turn, but here at NL50 players can get a little more out of line.

      would you bet or check/call turn?

      our bet sizing on flop looks weakish, so if we check/call turn, it seems we have to check call on blank rivers right?

      Hey Y,

      Bet turn and bet river would be my line here most often. Against sets you put i money anyway.. If you want to play passively, it makes sense to do so on the flop. On the turn, people no longer have air and you should just vbet.

      I prefer bet/bet/bet line or check/call down line.. I dislike changing to check mid hand since with the multiway dynamic, no air floats so you don't induce bluffs, you just let people pot control.
