      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $4.00
      UTG2:
      $10.99
      MP1:

      MP2 (Hero):
      $11.57
      MP3:

      CO:
      $6.68
      BU:
      $4.47
      SB:
      $10.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, Q.
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.27, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.27, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.69) K, T, J (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.35, CO calls $0.35.

      Turn: ($1.39) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO raises to $4.12, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.99.

      The flop is draw heavy and brings me a lo of outs: 8 outs for completing he street and 6 outs that would give me 2 pairs / sets.
      However i think a lot of those outs would help my opponent.
      The range i give my opponent is from QT until KA etc.
      Finally i would not give me more than 8 outs.

      Hi,

      Question: Barrel on the turn or fold?
      - You also have option to c/c turn instead of b/f or c/f. I would likely prefer that option more than b/f turn, since you have showdown value and can at least c/c turn and if you have reads, you can also c/c river putting him on floats.
      Also you would likely not fold out better hands if you bet turn, so you can consider going to pot control and if turn goes c/c, then go thin valuebet on the river.
