      Nut FD and OC's make pushing turn as a 2nd barrel the play that I make.

      Hi Rah,

      Bet less on the Flop since the board is dry (Because you have A) and 2nd barrel on the Turn and with a 33bb stack, I just shove it on the Turn.

      Your c/c doesn't give you many benefits so I prefer Bet/Call than Check/X

      Hmm, I always bet those draws very agressively to achieve as much fold equity as possible and to avoid spots when I'm confronted with a turn bet without good odds. I feel that if I bet less he'll call with smal PPs or middlepairs to which i have a lot of outs but still I prefer to take the pot on the spot. And if I hit the pot is much bigger and he's probably committed for his whole stack. If I miss and he overbets I can be pretty sure to be playing against a monster and fold.

      For the turn I really didn't feel to have any fold equity so I just tried to see the last card as cheaply as possible. I'm not able to explain however why I thought that, just had a strong feeling.
