      Hello acceleration123,

      For the given reason that we don't know the opponent and our kicker ain't that great, I'd just Bet/Fold on flop. Otherwise I think I'd still rather fold it there on turn. Even though we won the pot I'd say in long run we more often lose money for the reason that those kind of players on NL2 are very passive and don't bluff that often and often times doing such moves with strong hands. And rather avoid such risky spots where you don't know what to do than go broke.

      Best regards.
