      Hi Dejaloin,

      Why should you check the Turn with an overpair? Can you give me your arguments for that ? :)

      Thank you in advance!

      Well, since he called on the flop, maybe to induce bluff/semi bluff? If for example he had a 9, a 7, even pocket sixes, eights, etc, he could think they were good enough (thinking i was stealing with a weak ace? or could even think I had AQ, AK and didn't 2nd barrel after the turn missed me again)? I believe he had very few outs for the river (which wouldn't make the free card very dangerous if he checked behind)...

      I'm not sure, this just crossed my mind when I reviewed my session. What do you think?

      I think people on micro's are too passive and will pass on 7x,9x most of the time due this overcard (aka you give them a free card)

      People also stick with their pairs as soon as they call the flop so i want to punish that by shoving for value there

      Also the board on the Turn is scattered with random straight draws which makes the board drawheavier
