      Hero ?.

      I dont think theres any point in playing bet/fold here instead of check/fold here since the Ace is absolutely in his callingrange, and the only possible holding he might have that I have beat is a J (hes capable of calling at least the flop with that), but I dont think it makes up for it right?

      Check/fold the turn. Like you said, all you can beat is the J, and possibly KQ/KT, but those are unlikely. I think you could bet something like 0.60 on the flop, it works just as well to take down the pot. but for 10 cents, I'm just being picky ;)

      I would suggest not to check/fold every time here, especially not on 5handed, as people will float alot more against you if you do this every time. For that reason I many times bet/fold turn here, I still have some fold equity against A with weak kicker. it depends a lot from opponent weather to bet/fold or check/fold imo.

      With 5-handed I would bet/fold turn. Too many players calls flop with Jx.

      If I see him calling many c-bets, I make a second barrel. Against a more straight-forward hit-or-fold player, I'd play c/f. It really depends on the player, but I would more often second barrel than playing c/f.
