      PF: fine

      Flop: I don't think raising is so bad because we can argue that a bad villian like this could donk all kinds of draws or even a worse T but if we are called I think as played we just give up.

      Agreed. The relevant underlying assumptions are as follow:

      - regs don't lead weakly too often, especially not 3-way.

      - people (read fish) leading out weak have a weak hand more often than not until proven otherwise, which is why we just raise it up very often for value with any decent pair on drawy boards.

      - most fish aren't good enough to valuebet Tx/Jx on the river as played, especially not that big, so you're usually looking at a polarized big hands/busted draws range.

      - the most obvious draw got there and you don't know if this particular player would even try to bluff busted draws at all, which makes the river closer to a fold than a call.

      If the turn had blanked out, the number of big hands he could have would be much smaller, while the number of busted draws he could have would be much bigger. Hence we would lean toward calling, even if we're unsure of whether he does actually like to bluff busted draws.


      Hope it helps.
