    Hi adi,

    Just give up imo. Give up on the turn tbh. You're trying to bluff the guy here, but once he calls the flop he's probably got something. That's a problem for you in 2 ways:

    1) 51/9 guys are defending with such a wide range preflop that they do have combos that hit this board.

    2) 51/9 guys are bad bluff targets because they don't like to fold much when they have something generally.

    So we have a guy who may be fishy/stubborn enough to call you down with just ace high after chasing a nut flush draw, and a board run out that improves a bunch of his flop calling range to 2 pair or a straight. Give up, and do it earlier in the hand imo!

    It's ok to give up in spots like this. We are generally going to make our chips from 51/9 guys by value betting them 3 streets, not 3-barrel bluffing them off pots.

      I agree, he is playing calling station which suggests he has something weak and is trying to see the river with a weak pair and isn't interested in what you could have and only cares what he has. Unfortunately, you can't push someone like this off their hand without either a) going at them for so much they have to fold or b) having a hand that can just pip them at showdown.

      I would recommend just giving up at this point too, he is calling pretty much any fair bet and the only way you can win this hand is to fire right at him but with it being a freeroll, with his stats the way they are, I think he would call even an all-in in that spot, just on a weak pair.
