Hi, teh first caller is playing 23/20/2 over 183 hands. The villain on BB is playing 10/6/0 over 32 hands.

On the flop I wasn't folding for sure. On the turn should I've bet ? I decided to check and let the villain bet and have good relative position and maybe keep the pot small since I wasn't too happy with my hand.
Any thoughts on teh hand overall ?



Thanks

Hi fp,

I don't understand why you think V6 will bet. V3 was the flop aggressor, V6 has not taken an aggressive action the entire hand. I think it's essential to bet now on the turn because we are likely to have the best hand, can definitely get called by worse hands, and don't want to offer a free card since so many of them completely kill our hand or action.

I think the call on the flop is fine given a nitty villain is leading into 2 players, but I would definitely bet the turn here as played.
