      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , A:club:
      MP1 raises to $0,04, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0,18, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0,14.

      Flop: ($0,39) K:spade: , 5:club: , 4:club: (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0,02, Hero raises to $0,40, MP1 calls $0,38.

      Turn: ($1,19) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1,19) K:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1,19

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows (Js 4s)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and kings (As Ac)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and kings (As Ac)

      I'm never really sure what to do with an overpair on the turn. If I bet on the turn I feel like I'm committing myself to the pot so I check behind and try to get a cheap showdown. When the K:club: comes I don't see how a weaker hand can pay me so I check behind. If a safe card comes I think I should bet again on the river?

      no need to be scrared you are loosing a lot of value here!!! plus you are giving a lot of free cards with a flush draw on the board!!

      bet the turn for value and protection you are far ahead most of the times

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Why ain't ya betting the turn? You still need to protect your hand, there are a lot worse hands in his range which may pay you.

      Best Regards.
