No reads on villain. Or maybe one: I think I saw him earlier firing one c-bet and then shut down. Not sure though. Should I fold on the turn?

Hey Olaf,

preflop, flop and maybe turncall seems good if you expect your average 10NL regular villain to be barreling quite a bit on these streets. Turn can be a fold against tighter opponents on a dryer board like this especially if you can validate the info about him shutting down on the turn prior to the hand. The turn is usually a bad card for bluffs, you block the only available draw (98) with your hand and people may shut down with overcards a lot.

At these stakes it is very unlikely that they're firing 3 times as a bluff unless you have specific reads so I would fold the river.
