      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7, 7.

      Flop: ($1.05) T, T, 2 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($2.05) 4 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $1.00, MP1 raises to $2.50, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.05.


      what is the best play on this board? mp1 is 14/11 with AF of 6. i thought that i possibly held the best hand on the flop. yet i was afraid of some overpairs. i thought his check raise was going to be full of air and some over pockets but could i call? does he more often have it?

      I wouldn't call turn either. When someone with AF doesn't bet you should really realize something fishy is happening. After he c/c the flop I think he is slowplaying something so I'm inclined to check behind.

      I would check back flop against one opp, but against two as in this situation I may throw a bet to get rid of overcards here as at least one of them may have them. I would check back turn.

      This. Value in a bet on the turn is thin enough that it's not worth it against tight players, especially when they might be slowplaying stuff as well.



      Hope it helps.
