      villain is a complete unknown, got no info on the guy.

      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $25 (100 bb)
      SB: $19.43 (77.7 bb)
      Hero (BB): $34.77 (139.1 bb)
      UTG: $18.44 (73.8 bb)
      MP: $26.02 (104.1 bb)
      CO: $33.05 (132.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 8
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.62, SB folds, Hero calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.34) Q A 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($3.14) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.25, Hero???

      what should i do on the turn? would it be bad to check/call the turn and check/fold the river? or should i make my decision to call down on the turn and if i don't like calling down then fold the turn directly?

      Hey Lewis,

      The standard I recall from NL25 SH on Stars is that they bet twice and give up on the river so although some would argue for making the decision for both streets now on blanks, I still prefer to fold if he bets again, depending on sizing as well (minbets we call).

      I think you get enough barrels from gutters, flushdraws, Qx here to call your Ax again.
