Villain is fish, vpip 100 over 26 hands. Is this a fold on the turn, or call/cf river? I felt I should have fold turn, big problem of mine is I'm pretty undisciplined lol.

    Hi pockettones

    The raise on the turn looks strong and a lot of straights just got there. I would only call if I know the villain is capable of bluffing to push me off the pot. One thing to keep an eye on with players with high vpip is their aggressivenes. Many are loose-passive who only make aggressive moves when they have a strong hand. Against a loose passive villain I would normally fold the turn. Here against an apparent fish and no other read, calling the turn might be ok since you are getting good odds to call. The problem with calling the turn though is if we expect a new bet on the river. Even if a Q comes, we won't know if we are ahead or not. Here the river is a fold, especially with the ace.

    GL and have fun at the tables!
