      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $1.70
      BB:
      $2.94
      MP1:
      $2.01
      MP2:
      $5.04
      MP3 (Hero):
      $2.96
      CO:
      $4.38
      BU:
      $10.82


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      MP1 calls $0.05, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, SB calls $0.23, BB calls $0.20, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($1) T, 9, A (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP1 bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.25.

      Turn: ($2) 5 (4 players)

      Final Pot: $6.22.


      Let me explain better this hand. They were 3 limpers, 2 calling-stations. That's why the raise wasn't 0,35. I was afraid that if I don't get a good board, I wouldnt loose so much money. Anyway, I know it's just 0,15 more lol.

      Because of the A on the board, I just called the small bet, hopping for a J or another pair on the board. (You know that gambling felling takin' over you? lol)

      So my question is:
      In this situation, what it's the right move on the Turn?

      My 2cents: after the flop you are mostly beat. So u have 2 outs for a set and 1 out for a runner-runner straight. So check/fold always here.

      Hello Marlonmlk,

      I think raising MORE would mean you get MORE money from bad hands. As long as you have the majority of the equity, you make money :)

      Hand 1: 31.856% 31.56% 00.42% 1541081 20706.50 { 55+, A2s+, K5s+, Q7s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, A7o+, A5o, K9o+, Q9o+, J9o+, T9o }

      on the Flop you get 5:1 pot odds but that equilates into 16% equity. Chance of hitting a Jack on the Turn is 5% so yes you are gambling (and gambling is bad!) here if you call

      The Turn is a straight check/fold for me, no need to put more money in there

      Best regards,
      Gerv
