      Hello the :f_cool: is back :)

      Anyway I was going through this article when I read this:
      "You would play this hand the same way if, for example, T :club: had shown up on the turn. Once again, if your opponent raises, folding is your best option."

      I mean why would T :club: be a scare card here?

      Hey Kokuruz,

      The idea is that turn raises are generally very strong. Especially if you have no info on villain, it could easily be fine to just bet/fold because villain likely won't raise with enough worse hands to justify bet/calling, despite the Tc not really being a scare card.

      The main point of that section is to show that turn raises (especially at the micros) generally indicate a very strong hand. Although the article is slightly older, that same principle still applies now.

      Hopefully that helps :)
