      I'm not sure about my play here but I'd like to understand where is the mistake if there is any. my hand is pretty strong, tho now that I think about it, it's not that likely that he'll make such a play with worse than 2pairs, right ?

      Hello SneakyhanD,

      You can Bet/Fold the turn, you will be very often beat against this kind of movement. Often times those are the spots where you can just consider to Bet/Fold either with TPTK or overpair, sometimes even 2pairs.

      Best regards.
