      Hello BigAl123456,

      I'd prefer to Check/Call the turn since he could still have hand like Jx and what would likely just raise us and we don't want to face against that, with just Check/Call we at least get to see the river and maybe even hit our FH. But as played we have to go broke, getting too good odds.

      Best regards.

      veriz what do you think about overbet flop to protect?..i see many players who call even all in in this situation having gutshot(NL4).. in worst case he can have flush draw and we have 75% on flop axcept he got pocket kings

      The point with overbetting is that we are representing a very strong hand and to balance your lines we have to overbet also with bluffs then and I don't think that would be a good idea. :P The bet could be a bit bigger, $0.40+ but I don't mind such bet either, we will get our money in on river anyways.
