ROAD TO 10NL FR ZOOM: 2NL HH #1

As part of my short term goals to reach 10NL FR Zoom on PS I have made goal to post hh every day after my session if there is a spot I am unsure about. The below is my first post, let me know if there is anymore information I need to provide to help with advice.

Only 15 hands on villain so nothing influential from previous play.

I decide to take the c/bet on the flop as i feel as if my hand holds a lot of blockers for a lot of his call range pre flop on this board.

My main uncertainty is around the line taken from the turn. Do i have the correct blockers and position to be taking this line? Or should I even be trying this lines at 2NL and check folding on the turn?

    You have pretty good equity vs v's calling range otf and you are not likely to be played back at on 2nl so its a good flop bet. Turn you will need him to fold a little more than 1/3 of his hands given your equity, and your breakeven point is villian folding 9x like 70% of the time. He will also check back turn a lot with all his showdown value and you will be able to realise free equity with your overcard and flush draw, making checking quite +ev. Overall checking turn is great because we get to win the pot for free, and betting turn is pretty close to break even. My math was pretty rough but basically you just don't have enough fold equity to make a clear profit and you can realise your equity for free so just check.

    River is a c/f, don't try to make a random 2nl fold top pair

    I don't mind the steal attempt but I'd just c/f the flop. The way I look at it is this. You had two chances to win: 1 he folds preflop, 2 you hit the flop. Neither happened, you're OOP and all you're doing is compounding your problems by continuing to bet.

    Understood,

    Reading the above it makes more sense now, I am attempting to steal on the flop holding a lot of the draw cards that are going to be calling flop then folding turns to brick so i am valuing myself if i double barrel. I hold the blockers to attempt but if i don't get the c bet bluff through i am always being called by top and middling pairs and at 2NL they are holding them on for three streets.

    Don't get too fancy at 2nl. You want to find fat value. That's where you'll make most of your winnings. Make big hands and then build big pots. Trying to win blind v blind battles with mediocre hands in the SB blind is the opposite and will have the opposite affect on your win-rate.

    I don't mind the flop cbet, 2NL nowadays is weak enough to justify a high cbet ratio - and there is one broadway to represent and not a whole lot of draws available, bar 2 spades and QT - I think you get enough folds to make this +EV

    I'm check/folding from the turn onwards though, double barrelling air / weak draws at 2NL is a step too far at this limit imo. If we cbet here and he calls and the river brings a spade we can really light quite a lot of money on fire on what should have been a nothing hand.
