      Hero bets $0.50, BB folds, UTG folds, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP1 folds, CO folds,

      TURN ($1.60) 6:diamond: 7:diamond: Q:club: 8:diamond:

      check, UTG+1 bets $0.60, Hero folds,


      UTG+1 is a fish with Vpip/PFR 91/12 however only over 16 hands. IMO against his stack I cant play bet/fold turn and that turn card is really ugly. How would you play here?
      I'm having hard times with those KQ hands in blinds when hit TPGK, usually I play bet/fold flop, but many times I get only fishy callers and then on turn don't know where I am being OOP.

      Isolating preflop is one option. What is his WTSD value and fold to flop bet? If they're both high, then going broke with TPGK is fine with me.

      Yer his stack really sucks in this hand, the standard line would be bet/fold the turn on this drawy board, however despite his stack i still think id bet around $1 and then give it up to a raise as you would be almost definatly beat, and then check the river in hope of a free showdown which also sucks as you are out of position.

      I think folding top pair here is weak and you cant aford to give a free-card on this board.

      Tough spot though.

      rickydaprince,


      Villains WtSD is 36 and fold to flop bet 0, but only 16 hands, makes this some sense? I mentioned some stats even with this small sample only because he has a tendency to be very loose.

      I´d bet/call turn
      you still hold top pair with good kicker, so although board is drawy you might be still ahead and should bet for value against shortstack
