    It is $5.50 MTT with less then 200 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack. I know turn bet-fold is the standard play. But I didn't do that coz I don't want to leak anymore chips incase he made the flush. Betting on turn will most probably get all one pair type of hands to fold as he will also get scared of flush (incase he doesn't have flush). But if he calls my turn bet he will most likely have two pair or flush, so if I bet turn and he calls it will be wastage of chips. I don't like putting even single more chip if he has the flush or two pair. Even if I bet turn and he calls, I will check river he will bet and I will fold. What's the optimal play for this hand?

    Hi adi,

    I think you played this fine. The turn is a significantly bad card for you and good card for his range. Enough so that I would consider check/folding this card to a bigger bet. But 30% pot is small enough that I would call as well. River is obv a check/fold.

    One thing you said here:

    I know bet-fold is the standard play.
    I'm not sure that bet/fold is the "standard" play on such a horrible turn card. We should be betting the turn with a reduced frequency when we get such bad news. I actually prefer check/evaluate here over bet/fold because this card is so good for his range, while simultaneously making it much harder for him to call another bet with his worse hands.

    Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
