      Hi,


      I like your turn call, just because after he bets the turn so strong villain looks like he's dead-bent on continuing to bet at you, and raising the turn would be like throwing him a "hey there, stop for a second and think about what you're doing" sign, which could possibly stop him from mindlessly bluffing off his stack or trying to valuebet a top pair on the river.

      If you don't believe he's capable of bluffing there or bet/folding stuff like AQ/KK+ on the turn, by all means go ahead, raise it up and jam the river.


      Hope it helps.

      I think with a SPR of 24 and the Godlike Turncard ; I would be more inclined to raise this up primarily against FDs, Shrugging QJ+, Overs and combo draws

      If you raise it up on the Turn you essentially get 3 flat streets of value in case this guy just calls with his flushdraws and sometimes with his Toppairs.

      I think his 3barreling range is more polarized towards value and c/x with his medium strength hands

      Would be handy next time to display reads/stats if you have those but I think EV-wise, you get a tiny bit more value here with a set; on the flipside one can put so much pressure on a 280bb stack if he is capable of folding river with toppair after he calls your turnraise
