Question

Aggressive six-max game online. You raise under the gun to $8 and a player in middle position calls. Flop comes 7 6 2. You bet $14 and he calls. Turn is Q. You check. He bets $25. You call. River comes 3. You check and villain fires $80.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Call

You played this hand weird by checking the turn. You really should have bet all three streets for value. By checking the turn you make your range look very weak, so it looks like you're on a naked flush draw. By the river you have TPTK and your perceived range is weak. He could be betting a variety of hands on the river, from TT for value to a small flush draw to a complete bluff. Snap this off - you are good here fairly often.
