      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP1 with Q:spade: Q:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.50, 5 folds, UTG calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15) J:spade: 2:heart: 3:spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.32, UTG calls $0.82

      Turn: ($3.79) 4:spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($4.79) A:heart: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.00, Hero calls $1

      Should i bet bigger on the turn here? third spade made me a bit more cautious, but i new he hit his A on the river. Pot giving me 4:1 si have to call. He had AJ and i think he would have called any bet on the turn with his top pair.

      Hello ockerdoc,

      Flop: I'd raise bigger here, ~$2.

      As played
      Turn: Actually yeah, it could also be a trap, which he is trying to set up. Therefore I don't mind just the Call, problem is if for example we raise and he decides to 3bet us then we would be in trouble.
      River: For the given odds, I'd also Call, he might sometimes as well block-bet there with some Jx type of hand. We only need to have like 15% equity here to make it profitable. Also you get a good note from him with what he takes such a line.

      Best regards.
