Good question and crappy situation. I fold to loose passive fish who never bets and are actually betting this flop. Loose aggressives I'll call the flop once. We're obviously looking much better and can play accordingly if we hit our A or Q. I, mainly, want to see if they bet again. If they do, I'll re-evaluate then on who they are and what I know about them to get their range of hands. Truth be told, though, I've been pushing myself lately to not get money in weak anyway. We can definitely take our weakness into factor as a reason for folding a blank turn. They could be double barreling, but we're weak and we need WAY more information to keep going then the fact that they're loose aggressive. (to the experts, is the above bad reasoning? does my reasoning of A high weakness on the turn mean that we should go ahead and fold on the flop? is the play correct and i just need a better explanation as to why?)If they slow down and check the turn, I, personally, take control of the hand. I guess that turns into a re-question for the next person who looks at this thread. If a player slows down, I tend to attack the weakness and bluff the turn when scare cards come to top pair and draws. I am leaning towards asking if this is wise or just too much aggression, but I feel I know the answer. Something along the lines of "what is your opponent's aggression factor turn and river? go for it if they show down a low percentage of hands that they play and are passive" ?
