      I think our FE on the turn sucks, since we probably only get folds from 88, 99 and maybe TT? And that's not really certain, since he's a fish that might call you down with 2nd pair kind of hands. Besides, that constitutes a very small part of his range IMO.

      I'm not sure I call the turn. I can't see a hand that called us on the flop that we beat. Unless he's the kind of guy to call A2.
      It sucks c/c that OOP, because we'll often be faced with another river bet. It's tempting to call his smallish bet. But I really dont see how it can be profitable.

      if you´re going to c/c turn, then you hope that he was floating on the flop and now is bluffing and you can take free showdown
      in general I think c/c turn is fine
