      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5, 6.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.09) 6, 5, 4 (4 players)
      BB checks, MP1 checks, CO bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.20, BB folds, MP1 folds, CO calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.49) J (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.40, CO raises to $2.03(All-In), Hero ???.

      A little bit info of CO (very small sample size): 14/8/7.0/43/97 [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands]

      Was my Bet on Turn bad? Should it be Check behind rather than Betting here? What is possible action should take after he shove like this?

      Thanks and best regards,

      Preflop: I would just fold it preflop. So many limpers and we can expect 2 more. I think only 2 moves are good here - isolation or fold. For isolation our hand is too weak, but we do have position. Without reads I'm just folding it.

      Flop: We flopped pretty good so we want to get some value out of it. Board is super draw heavy so we should be careful on later streets. I would raise bigger - $0,30.

      Turn: I would think of protection but 4/5 pot is too big. We won't get value from 77-TT. With betting so big we have to be ready to go broke on the river. I would rather bet 3/5 or something like that. When he c/shoves I think we have easy decision - he seems tight + he c/c flop and c/r turn. We can expect more than one pair kind of hand.

      Hello anhvusa,

      Preflop: Well, not a huge fan of limping here. You will way too often overplay the hand. Rather just fold. Even isolating would be better here than limping in.

      As played
      Postflop: You have to raise a bit bigger on flop. And as played exactly those spots are what I am talking about on turn. Where a guy decides even to Check/Shove vs us. Where most likely we will be hardly beat, I'd Bet/Fold it here. We still need to protect our hand.

      Best Regards.
