  • Tough spot on turn Help !!

    What to do on the turn?

    And should I 3-bet on flop or calling check-raise is fine there?

    If you're confident in your flop call then why fold turn? Nothing changed, it's unlikely there were raising an 8

    What did he show up with in the past when he check raised flop?

      I was not confident about my hand strength, that's why I asked for help

        Hi adikumar2010

        Your raise sizing is good, I'd personally have made it at least a full 3x - 4x raise to build the pot as were both so deep.

        Tricky spot when villain check raises flop, he has pocket 3's or a draw most of the time or maybe a top pair hand like J9/10 9 if he's a fish.

        I too would call the flop raise with the intention of calling a turn bet if we see a friendly turn card. Villain will often have 10J/QJ hands as well as some super strong combo draws like 10Js/QJs. The more reads we have in villain the better but I would elect to either shove or fold his turn bet. We can call but were give villain the opportunity to make his hand. There's not many good river cards for us. Any picture card is a threat as is any spade.

        Our decision ought to be based on any reads that we have picked up on villain. If we have no reads I'd probably be inclined to just fold on the turn and wait for a better spot because I wouldn't want to be that guy that stacks off 86 big blinds with one pair.

        Cheers, Chris.
