      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10)
      BB ($5.37)
      UTG ($11.87)
      UTG+1 ($11.86)
      CO ($15.54)
      Hero ($10)

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: J:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.30, fold, Hero calls $0.30, fold, BB calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.95) 3:heart: T:spade: 8:club:

      BB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.80, BB calls $1.80, UTG+1 folds

      TURN ($5.05) 3:heart: T:spade: 8:club: 2:heart:

      BB checks, Hero bets $3.30, BB calls $3.27 (AI)

      Okay, other than folding pre, I'd like an evaluation of this hand.
      Should I be taking a free card on the turn? Suppose he can have a set and I dont have much fold equity vs his stack after he check/calls the flop raise?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Flop: Okey, lets just take it postflop. If you are playing such hands then you as well have to look spots like this and to consider even raising. Although while having another player in the pot I'd be more inclined to just Call and reevaluate it on further streets while we invite the BB to join us as well. Would be ugly if someone of them goes over us.

      As played
      Turn: Not worth to ship it, we ain't gonna make worse hands to fold anyways. And if you get a free card then why don't you just take it? If you hit you can still ship it on river.

      Best regards.

      Yeah was certain I should take the free card on the turn. As it turned out he had KhTh so I lose here anyway. At least I don't lose on a brick river by taking the free car though.
