      Imo you can´t b/f turn with two pair
      BB should raise pf with TT/QQ/AA and AQ
      so that leaves AT, KJ that he could play that strongly and also maybe some stright/flushdraws and QT
      Since all the draws missed, I´d likely also c/c river
      And I think on that board bet/fold flop is better line than c/c

      Any merit on c/r'ing the turn ?

      The only hands he will raise for sure if we donk the turn are AT and KJ, worse hands like draws and worse 2 pairs might not feel as thrilled to inflate the pot further, yet they would likely bet again on the turn if we check, to continue one with their flop action, and often call a raise.

      On the river we have a lot of options depending on what card comes. If we check on blank cards, his betting range will be polarized between made straights and bluffs because we might c/r him again. And we can get away on ugly cards given that we got most of the value we'll get from worse hands on the turn already.

      Thoughts?

      I think leading out on the turn is fine
      you can´t really be sure, that villain would bet there, because he´d likely take his free card with worse one pair hand and sometimes conitnue with flushdraw.
      Also what would you do if he decides to bet/shove- then we´re likely turning our hand into bluff, because I don´t like getting all-in on liomped pot with that hand, btu you can´t really sure that he isn´t shoving there with QT

      Thanks, it sucks for QT indeed.

      Also if BB only calls on the turn, what do we do on the river ?

      - I assume we're betting a blank river again, what if he raises ? Just call ?

      - Say the river is something ugly, like a Qs, are we still betting but this time folding to a raise ? Or do we c/c ?
