      Thoughts on turn play?

      Wasn't loving board at that point, easy to be against two pair / set / straight given typical calling range of 4 bet pre flop.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $12.23
      Hero:
      $5.93

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , A:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.18, 2 folds, BB raises to $0.31, Hero raises to $0.96, BB calls $0.65.

      Flop: ($1.95) K:diamond: , T:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.1, BB calls $1.10.

      Turn: ($4.15) Q:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05.

      River: ($4.25) J:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $4.25, Hero calls $3.82 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $11.89

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, ace high (Ah As)
      BB shows (Js 7s)

      Hero wins with a straight, ace high (Ah As)

      turn- pot is $4,15 and he bet only $0,05 I think that you should raise to protect your hand

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Guess I wouldn't play it much differently. A lot of 2pairs/straights are already possible on turn and for the given reason I would also consider playing it passively and not isolate myself against better hands. We are still able to fold it on river if we need to.

      Best Regards.
