fold cb flop 45 turn 43
214 hands
the turn doesnt give us much fold equity, we pick up a fd and we have 2 overs, is that enough to fire again without the fold eq in the equation?
He'll still call with small pp, pairs+draws and raise us with 2 pair+

Hi Praydk, I think this is one of the relatively bad turn bricks we can double barrel on. Think of the type of hands that villain calls us with preflop and calls the flop with.
Tx: well I assume we are not targeting those to fold to two bets
PPs: 44, 55, 66 there are not folding; even hands like 77-99 will not fold because they might put us on an Ax that we pick up some equity with OTT and we fire again
Ax floats: well those just picked up a gut shot and might not fold either

So I think here I would prefer a check back to realize our equity; if we fire turn I think we need to be firing river a big chunck of the time which I don't necessarily like with our hand and board texture and more importantly villain type.
