      It really depends on your reads on the player. Some players I would fold there to, others I would happily get my money all in. At NL2 I see some fish showdown with all sorts of rubbish or total bluffs. If villain is one of the better players then consider folding the turn.

      Hello jockel80,

      You can just ship it on flop for the reason that he also has a 50BB stack. I don't really think that I am getting away here. :) As played no way I am folding on turn.

      Best regards.
