      Hi all

      For this hand, I'm thinking my turn line was weak, is it?

      This generally applies to all medium pocket pairs I have, I think I'm not aggressive enough with them, even with over cards on the board.

      Thanks a lot

      You could second barrel here. K is a good card for this and you may get a free SD if he calls. Dont think he would bet there with air so c/f is ok after check. I would rather bet/fold here.

      With out any reads It's going to fine the best line in this spot.
      c/f gives him the opportunity to bluff us from the best hand.
      c/c will put us in ugly spots in the river because we don't know if he is willing to double barrel a bluff.
      b/f will only get worser hands to fold.

      Since it's unlikely villain holds Jx or a bigger OP (TT,QQ,AA) only a King beats us.
      You can't be wrong with any of the above lines but I still go with b/f against unknown because at these stakes people will bet when checked to without realizing if it's for value or a as a bluff which means that the chances for being pushed from the pot by worser hands is not low.

      Good Luck.
