Default Stars million hand, horrible turn so turn my hand into a bluff?

Opponent is playing tight, something like 13/9/3 over about 80 hands. He has min3bet twice before (once vs me) and cbet both times. PT says he cbets 100%. Obviously flop plan was checkraise, but he decided not to cbet this time around. I have my stats as 15/11 and have been caught 3betting w/ JTh but otherwise only shown down a few good hands, most hands not being showndown. Opponent doesn't seem v good, or the sort of guy who cares too much about image

You were better off leading and calling a push, cant give free cards on this board in case he checks behind

The turn really sucks. I think you have to fold.

fold, there isnt much you beat right now. If he has cbet everytime I'm fine with checking (still not happy about it though). Turn is a [censored] FOLD

not a big sample, but when someone that _always_ cont bet suddenly check behind on a board like that its often somethiing huge. I like the flop check and def think turn is a fold.

possibly, but i think we are beat a ton here, however at the time i thought it was a good idea to try to make him fold a turned higher two pair, and im less convinced now after talking to a few people about it
