      Just fold the turn, barring reads that he's very aggressive / spazzy he usually has exactly what he's representing: a flushdraw that just called the flop to see a heart and got there, so without even a redraw there is no point in calling it off there.

      Hope it helps.

      Hi MasterofZerg,

      Wondering if ch back turn, then c/fold river depending on the bet size is fine here.

      Sure, depends on what you're putting villain on on the flop. Mostly they'll have floats, flushdraws, small pocket pairs, and lower overpairs depending on how they play.

      Fish will have tons of floats, lots of flushdraws, all pocket pairs. They'll call the turn with anything remotely ressembling a redraw, even naked pairs if they just don't believe you. It's a mandatory bet/fold for me when in doubt.

      Tags won't have many floats but they'll have some flushdraws (they might raise the flop with some of these) as well as tons of pocket pairs, so there is value against them in betting the turn against stuff like TT-JJ that didn't want to 3-bet preflop or random pocket pairs that picked up a redraw. If they're tight enough not to call with stuff like 6h6x or you're convinced they'd have 3-bet TT-JJ preflop, you don't have to bet.

      Nits will have virtually no floats. They'll have nutted flushdraws only, and all pocket pairs but they'll rarely call a big turn bet with any of that, so really by betting you're just asking to get shoved on by flushes. I'd check back and reevaluate on the river, mostly expecting them to lead flushes, so possibly going for value after a check.

      Hope it helps.
