      0.25/0.50 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , A:club: . CO posts a blind of $0.50.
      MP3 calls $0.50, CO checks, BU folds, SB calls $0.25, Hero raises to $3.00, MP3 folds, CO calls $2.50, SB folds.

      Flop: ($7.00) K:diamond: , Q:club: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.50, Hero raises to $7.00, CO calls $4.50.

      Turn: ($21.00) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $10, CO folds.

      Final Pot: $31.00

      The reason i bet the turn that high is because if a J or a 10 shows up then i could be in trouble and also now there was a flush draw on the board.. so i wanted to take the pot down there and then..

      suppose you were villain in this hand, would you fold a flush draw to a $10 bet on turn?

      Good question.. Did not think of it that way..

      and the answer is i am not sure to be honest.. I hit then it would be a big pot to take down.. if not then i loose a big pot..

      it would be a 50/50 for me...

      If you want to protect on the turn, then you have to bet more than 1/2 the pot. You're giving 3:1 odds, and with top set, you're also giving good implied odds to your opponent ;)
      I'd also just bet out on the flop. There's not much chance that villain will bet, and you don't have a strong enough hand to slowplay, so bet ~5-6$ I think. Oh and I'd also raise 50c more preflop, but that's just a habit, it probably doesn't change much ^^,

      dont check raise the flop
      the board is drawy and it looks weird.
      Betting out will gain more money.

      At the turn bet higher
      If he has 2 pair, set he will call more
      and you dont want to see a Jack
      or a Ten at the river.

      Because it killes the action.
