Cbet Flop 76 Turn 55
1k+ hands
So here's a situation I get into alot, oop with top pair/small overpair, and I don't see villain hitting alot.
What would be the best line here?
after we check to the raiser and squeeze a cbet out of him, do we raise, do we call and lead turn? I decided to lead this time because of his cbet turn%, but what will I get called by?
Maybe the turn should be a x/c too, but what's his value range when he barrels that turn? TT+?

I hate donking ott.

It's closer between check/calling or check/folding the turn. If we check OTT and he continues, lets look at what's happening. He raised utg and is double barreling a low board. We are crushed vs his overpair heavy range.

I would most likely check/call turn (though we can seriously consider folding there and then) and check/fold basically any river except a 9.

Hi Pray,

I agree on not liking the turn lead. We are really not considering enough post flop stats here, stuff like went to showdown would be useful. Given his c-bet stats it seems he's slowing down on the turn a lot, probably continuing to barrel with made hands and draws. Since there are no draws present, I think we can check and fold to a double barrel here pretty comfortably, as his 2 barrel range on this board texture will contain too many hands in the TT+ range. If the turn goes check/check, this is where WTSD comes into play for me. I would plan to check/fold an ace, check/call a normal bet on a K, Q, J, or T, fold to a big bet. Check call all smaller cards vs a guy with a low WTSD (to let him bluff), and lead all small cards vs a guy with a high WTSD (to let him bluff catch us with ace high and small pairs).
