      Hi.

      In general you are taking checkcall F donk T lines with unsuitable hands.

      1. Turn improves your calling range - pairing oe coordinating card
      2. Your hand is strong enough to play for 3 streets of value but not more than that (tptk or weak 2p)

      Sry to bother you, but I'm not sure I completely understood your answer on that one.

      Do you mean my hand is too weak for the check-call-lead line? And the two situations you gave are good for that line?

      Would you mind giving a simple example of no 1)?

      Yes i meant that.

      Example: board is J969 and u have A9. This is a card which helps your range a lot more. The preflop raiser will often check back 9x on the flop so he rarely had trip 9s and will often check back this turn.

      However if u lead the turn he doesnt have the chance to checkback and take a free card.

      Example 2; board is J96T, u can lead with KQ or JT/T9 or with some bluffs: similar concept.
