      Hi Orvara,

      Ch/f turn is the best decision here. The board doesn't look very good for a second barrel since the 7 made it even more drawy and it isn't a scary card, so you'll hardly ever get him to fold here.

      I also think you could raise to 4bb PF in NL50, except from late position so you can make your steals cheaper.

      Hey Orvara,

      as dandycal said before it's better to raise 4BB preflop at least until NL100, unless table is extra tight, but then it's better to change it for a better table on NL50 than to loosen up and openraise less.

      As played, it's best to just give up the hand without a made hand when you face more than 1 opponent. So, just c/f unless you improve, it's better to wait for a better chance.

      On the side note, if CO is usually aggressive and then decides to just call, it might be a sign he actually has something.
