      I think I misplayed my hand here. I was afraid of a set, so I pot controlled on the turn. What's the best line to use here on the turn?

      Hi,

      Yeah that hand is totally misplayed...

      Same comment as the last hand about your bet sizing preflop - you should adjust your bet sizing to your opponents. Don't just use the pot button.
      If those fish are limp/call happy don't hesitate to make it 6 or 7 BB preflop.
      You building the pot and get them to be committed faster.

      Postflop :
      Against unknown I'd bet/3bet the flop on the drawy board. You can't give him free cards.
      As played on the flop the turn is a great card for you since it lower the probably he has a set (chances he has 66 is lower now).
      So I'd bet 4/5 and call a shove.
      As played on the turn:
      That's one of the ugliest card you can see. It hits the 57 OESD the T7 gutshot SD and the FD.
      Calling the bet is the only mistake left to be done...
      Take this hand as a lesson to the future. good luck.

      Hey!

      I agree with maya. I'd just 3bet the flop. I just don't get tired of seeing TP when somebody c/mr.
      I'd make it $12-$13 and ship any turn card.

      Even against the tightest of the ranges [99,66,44,96s,64s] you have 18% equity. I mean, 18% equity sucks obviously :P But the thing is that his is the top of the top of his range.

      3betting is very important in this spot because:

      a) you make him pay for his draws
      b) you extract value from hands that will shut down on a bunch of turn cards (such as 9x or TT).

      So, go for the 3b on the flop!

      Cheers
