Hi Alton.
First can I say thank you for the excellent value of your book/course. It has been perfect for helping me return to the game.
In the video Section 11 – Part 3 – 1 Min 25 – Table 2 – AKs
Even though villain folds on the flop. On that turn what opponents would you check back the turn?  also would you ever check that turn OOP after betting the flop?

Again Thank you so much for all your help and the great course

Hi Mike,

I replied to your comment on the video comment last week, but just in case you didn’t see it, I’ll include it here too:

I think how we play the turn, whether we’re in or out of position depends on the range we put our opponent on. We have to determine our opponent’s 3-bet flatting range and then flop c-bet calling range based on the board texture, as well as our perceived range. Using that info, we can determine if we think we have decent fold equity or not on the turn and either c-bet or check accordingly. In this scenario, villain’s 3-bet flatting range maybe fairly wide (AQ, AJ, KQ, KJ, 22-JJ, suited connectors / one-gappers, etc.). If he calls the flop c-bet and the turn is a low card, then we should probably check because he’s not folding a lot of pairs and we’re ahead of his broadway cards. In position, we can check and see the river for free. Out of position, we check/call or check/fold if he c-bets depending on his sizing.
