      I missed the c-bet on the flop, because I found many check/raises on flop on NL100...

      So, is it ok to go broke on the turn?

      I prefer a flat-call on the turn and play some more poker since not many worse hands are likely to give you action after your raise.

      Stats of BTN/SB because I dont like A:c8 3.5bb from CO

      On the turn, I'd call and see what he does and what the river brings, position baby :D

      i think your turn push is fine, hands like fds gutshots etc have outs and will maybe call your shove, and you definitly have to protect against the fd.

      I have another question here, do you think I shouldn't play hands like A8o against such loose opponents? ...for example like this hand here. Is it -EV? Should I avoid it, or is it one more way to get some money out of fish when played correctly?

      ...my thoughts were, you can isolate loose limpers when you have similar hand in late position, so you have position on the fish postflop and if fish is sitting in the blinds, then you have similar situation and I was thinking I can get some money out of them or at least win the blinds...

      ...does this perhaps apply only to loose villains with high Fold-to-c-bet stats?
