IMO:Probably fold preflop, I don't want to go back and check the OP to see what our stack size is. But it's close to the 10X rule and we're oop.Check/call flop.Check/fold turn if he bets again.If flop goes check/check, lead the turn. Fold if raised (more player dependent but generally right)If called on the turn, c/fold the river if he bets.I would never ever c/raise the turn for the reasons people have already said. You're just getting money in bad for very little reason.

How have you been playing poker so long and you don't even know why you bet?There are 2 reasons. ONLY 2 reasons.1. You bet to get a worse hand to call2. You bet to get a better hand to foldEverything past that elaborates on one of those 2 categories.
I disagree with this a little and I think this is where RT is going. We also bet to protect our hands at times. For instance, when the flop checks through we can generally bet the turn to protect against his AK getting a free draw to 6 outs on the river. We don't however want to c/raise and bloat the pot in order to protect our hand. Protecting our hand is not worth creating a huge pot on the turn with one more card to come. Protecting our stack >>> protecting our hand. So the correct play if you want to protect your hand is to lead the turn. This both protects our hand and protects our stack.

The problem with this hand Is that MY advice was spot on from the start.and that zach sucks at NL, and matt always gets into marginal situations with small edges and is probably very swingy.righht?matt, your results stil very swingy?
RT, you are going to be SICK to your stomach if Matt posts his graph. It's the most consistent rocketship you've ever seen.Mark
