      Was playing against passive calling station.

      Worth a bet on turn even with 2nd pair (only) for value?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $0.5
      Hero:
      $3

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , J:heart:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 3 folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) K:diamond: , J:diamond: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.08, SB calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.32) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.15, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.32

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: From MP2 it's a bit too loose I would say. Just puts you into difficult spots postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Once again you are representing a weak hand with your 1/2 pot size be there. Rather just make a normal bet size on flop and most likely just Check it behind while you wont get called by a lot worse there.

      Best regards.

      Villian had played 88% of hands, WTS 66% of the time.

      Don't the rules change a little when we are against such a huge fish?

      Of course they do but if he is rather passive fish then you can easily just Check it behind on turn as well and not pick the 3street value line. But obviously it's not a huge mistake but still if I would bet then I would just bet normally. :) Right now you are still giving perfect odds for a FD or whatsoever.
