  • NL25 KK turn bet for thin value?

    The turn card is very interesting. Can I bet the turn for thin value? I bet on the turn because I assume that they will call my preflop raise with pocket pairs most of the times. But after that one of the guys called my turn bet too I was doing check/fold on the river.

    Hi Nocco88,

    I actually think that betting turn here for thin value with the intention of checking back the river is quite a good play against two opponents. I also like your sizing for this matter. Worse 2 pairs can still call one more street.

    Checking can get really ugly since BU is still left to act and it will be tough to tell if he is capable of betting any worse here into two OTT. Same is true for the case when it gets checked through and BB bets the river into the two of you.
