      Its a good turn for a second bullet, if you think the CO is often calling flop to bet the turn, or often calling that flop with a missed number PP (22-44, 66, 88-TT). This would be a good move against 15-12 3.0 players.

      Against 31-3 1.1 though? No no no no :) He looks like a station and will just call call call all day here. You have no fold equity in a semi bluff.

      Just check and if he bets, call for the FD then fold if it misses. Dont try and push stations off their hands. In fact you should rarely even cbet against such a player. If you raise and miss check it down. If you raise and hit take 3 streets of value. Thats all you need to do to beat stations - play straight up, no finesse required :)

      I don't mind if you noticed that CO is often floating the float and usually bets the turn when you check to him, so i doubt this guy behaves like that. So overall Jaissica is right (again! Want my job?:p), you're likely better of check/folding.

      Hope it helps.
