Today w34z3l is back with another innovative series that will vastly improve your game.

Without doubt the Turn is the toughest street to play in No Limit. It's harder to be aggressive and face aggression, and good Turn play is often the difference between the weak regulars and those who crush. 

Turnover Tactics is a new series aimed at getting you rock solid on the Turn, and the four lessons look like this:

  • Basic Barrel Strategy
  • Defending on the Turn
  • Check raising the Turn as the preflop aggressor
  • Semi bluff mechanics on the Turn

Today's lesson is all about when to passively defend on the Turn, when to check call, check raise, when to fold and how to defend 2-pairs. He then goes on to hand examples.
