      Check/raise in this spot is a good move but the raise should be 1.70+$ and push the turn. There is no point to check on the turn.

      Hello Mistyboyo,

      Check/Raise postflop represents a monster on such a dry flop. I tend to go for the check/call to let Mp1 call as well and gives you more value.

      When you check/call on the Flop, check/raise the Turn then whenever a K,Q or J or any FD is possible. Mostly the raise of you gives you no FE but that's not what you want.


      With a Set postflop on a rainbow dry flop, you want to extract the most value, that is your main goal.

      As played, you got iniative on the turn so shove it on the Turn. If you didn't did that, do it on the River.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
