      If he was going to raise pairs he would have done it on the flop. This is mainly flushes and boats. You can make a fairly safe fold.

      I agree.

      What about checking behind on the turn as u have a few outs for nut flush and nut FH?

      This, tho you'll sometimes run into a few overpairs that didn't want to raise on the flop (slowplaying or just not treating overpairs like the nuts to begin with) that suddenly go nuclear on the turn (it's getting scarier so slowplaying is no good or they have a redraw to the flush with the overpair so it becomes the nuts).

      The reason we bet the turn is because we feel we're still ahead of worse hands like random pairs and floats that picked up a redraw that we can actually bet for value there. If you think villain always raises an overpair on the flop and never floats with overcards, then you're up against mostly flushdraws that got there on the turn, so then checking behind would make the most sense. The fact that we get raised here only means we just learned we're beat, that doesn't mean there wasn't value against his range to begin with.


      Hope it helps
