      Hero ???


      CO was marked as a nit but this was my first hand so I didn't have his stats.

      I wonder what's the best line to maximize my fold equity. I could either bet turn and shove river or check/shove OTT.

      I think I have enough equity to check/shove OTT as a bluff rather than go for a standard bet. In addition to that, I think I get more FE this way.

      Or is it better to just bet on the turn and call if he shoves (as I'm committed vs a shove)?

      would he bet the turn if we check to him? is he folding Ax if we check/jam on him?

      without reads ill assume hes generally passive and will not bet and will check back the turn so the max fold equity line on the turn is to bet. if he shoves i think we are usually committed and have to call with our monster draw.
