    Default 75s from MP, turn+river play

    Please no comments on the pre open Its Big 5 from ps .fr

    I just want to know if you would bet this turn or rather check behind. And how you would proceed river in both cases.
    Also this was a player who just came at our table , so no reads yet.

    Altough its basically one of the worst turn cards in the deck for me I am still not 100% sure if checking behind is the best option vs betting.

    What is ur point in betting turn? I would much rather that u check turn and be willing to call that amount on river then to bet turn and fold river. Checking turn allows u to showdown for close to same price of ur bet and also induces bluffs on river.

    Checking turn calling river seems best to me. As played, river feels like a fold I don't make.

    I agree that that line seems best!

    I was in doubt, cause in the case if he hasn´t got me beat on turn , there are a bunch of hands in his range that could improve river and have us beat. Also I am the player that often take the more agressive route if I am in doubt.

    Yeah like in my previous comment , I should have checked turn and call every river to make it easier for myself.

    I think your line is good as played. There are plenty of worse hands that call a turn bet.

    Whatever happens OTT you can't call every river, you have to fold 2/9/clubs at a minimum.

    Lol now I am confused again

    Isn't it a spot were both betting and checking are very close to eachother in terms of most optimal?

    I think betting turn is easily better than checking. You can make a clear fold to a raise and your hand needs protection. Villain has a lot of pretty bad hands which have between 12 and 20 outs against you. As played, his line looks pretty strong but with two pair and 3:1 I find a fairly easy call, hoping to beat some random bluff or pair that is just clicking buttons.
