      CO is 24/20 over 42 hands, no other info.

      Just wondering if I should raise the turn or call the turn and ship the river (assuming he fires 3)? Villain’s sizing seems to suggest he’s quite polarised to something like AK, AQ, AJ, KK and 33 along with some very possible bluffs. That said, his bluffs are probably club draws. I’m just curious because if I call the turn ~37% of rivers will be bad for me (Q, J, T or club) because either he's barrelling equity and gets there or it becomes a scarecard for a hand like AK and now he doesn't like getting the money in. However if the river isn’t one of these and he fires again, at least I capitalise on his bluffs and he might feel more committed with a hand like AQ.

      Hero (BTN): $20.10 (100.5 bb)
      SB: $21.93 (109.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 9
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.30) 9 K 3 (2 players)
      CO bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.30) A (2 players)
      CO bets $2.40, Hero…

      Hey Lewis,

      I'd also consider raising flop here since you are BU vs CO and can have a wider flatting range plus more bluffs on such a board than when flatting vs UTG for example.

      As played, I think raising turn makes more sense if he doesn't fold Ax often because you get more turn + river call instead of just river raise call.
