      Hello!

      I called very loose/aggresive SB with AJ. On the flop, I raised my TPTK. On the turn and river I was going for pot control because of possible flush. Is it better to bet/fold?

      His stats: 39/33/51/69/40/2,2/34/50/171 (VPIP/PFR/Steal/CB/Fto3b/AF/WTSD/W$SD/Hands)


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, J.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.6) 5, T, J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.6) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.6) K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.6.
      Results follow:

      SB shows a pair of kings(K 4).
      Hero shows a pair of jacks(A J).

      SB wins with a pair of kings(K 4).

      Hello Alleen86,

      Rather Bet/Fold the turn as well for free showdown and as well for protection. He may still Call us with a lot worse pairs and sometimes even draws.

      Best regards.
