      Results follow:

      BU shows a straight, king high(Q T).

      Preflop bet should be higher, right? The flop call was ok imo, but what about the turn, what would you do in that spot?

      Hello abc794,

      Preflop: Mainly made a huge mistake here by raising it so small. :D It ain't even a 2x raise. I'd do it ~$0,30.

      As played
      Postflop: If you planning to continue on flop then rather get it in. Although I would be more often inclined to make the crying fold here. There are just so many sets possible, even straight possible 2pairs possible, a lot of combodraws against you don't get that great equity. Therefore more often if he is rather passive player then I'd just Bet/Fold it while I played such a play preflop.

      Best regards.
