      IMO Instead of betting on the turn with 4 outs left you should focus on the pot control. He also represented high cards with that first call 4 times BB and not folding after your continuation bet is another reason to just check with K on the turn and control the pot

      Villian dependent. This is an ok spot vs the right villian though, since turn gives you outs and improves your percieved range while not helping his for the most part.

      Hi,


      Depends on villain's preflop range.

      If he's flatting you with a lot of connectors that hit the 86 part of the flop like 87/76/98/77/A8.. there is a good chance he has to fold that on the turn. He'll also be hard pressed to call if he somehow has 99-JJ there. Still, he's never folding any Q.

      If he's more the type to play highcards his range is more heavily weighted towards top pairs that he is never ever folding to just a turn bet, and since you can't really go around triple barreling unknowns at nl10 expecting them to fold flopped top pair, you're likely better off giving up.


      hope it helps.
