      Hero wins with a straight, five high (Ad Jd)

      Should I fold the turn here?

      If I didn't hit the straight on the river I'm folding to another large bet, on the river I felt we were most probably splitting the pot anyway.

      Anything else I should have done differently?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      I'd say nice hand, and if we would miss on river and face again a big bet, then I'd rather fold. Since such a small induce bet on flop and then starting bet big on further streets is often a good hand, which tries to trap us. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
