      After you get called on the flop and hit your second pair on the turn you have two options - check behind to control the size of a pot and induce a bluff or bet/fold if you think your opponent is on a draw often. Bet/call is overplaying your hand, he won't ever raise you there with worse hand.

      Personally I guess I would check behind and called a bet on the river.

      With 2nd pair on the turn, I'm checking behind also for pot control. I would only call a small bet on the river... otherwise I'm folding. As played, I'm folding to his check/raise on the turn.

      I would actually rather go for b/f here because I`m IP and can often get a free showdown if he calls so I control the size I`m willing to invest and you also protect against the fd that is still in his range here.

      Hi,


      Both BogdanDin7 and radyan111 have good points, I don't think you can go wrong with either b/f c/f or cb c/c against an unknown, even tho i believe unknowns are more prone to calling too much as opposed to bluffing too much, so i would probably b/f c/f myself.

      As played, you will rarely ever be good against his turn raising range, so against an unknown don't do it and fold there.


      Hope it helps.
