      I would lay down turn without reads. This board is scary for most people to bet on.

      Hi,


      Rebuy to 100bb.

      I'm also folding on the turn usually, and definitely folding on the river. The times I call on the turn are against people whom I think are bad enough to bet stuff like AJ/AT/JT on the turn, wrongly 'thinking' it's for value. Anybody who's got a clue usually won't pot it twice without Qx, most likely exactly KQ since it's hard to donk pot with a bare Qx on the flop to begin with.


      Hope it helps.
