      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, against a loose player it might be a possibility. He is most likely going to pay us with the J here. But the question is if we really should do it? Sometimes those kind of opponents even take this kind of line with draws on flop/turn and then on river for induce a raise, doubt that the guy is going to pay with worse hands than flush here, although even with flush he will have hard time calling it. :(

      Most likely my own play would be not to raise the turn at all and rather take pot control there. And reevaluate it on river.

      Best Regards.
