      Just a simple hand here. I can't imagine the board hitting either of us, so I'm only behind pocket pairs, or AQ+, or some weird hand with a 5. The bet size wasn't very big, so I don't know if hes just trying to bait, or just a very bad bluff. Still, I don't want to bleed money where I can help it. Fold or call?

      Hello KiroLiro,

      Most likely it would be safer to just fold the turn, cause I mean if you Call the turn then you practically beat most of the hands on the river as well. :) Doesn't really make sense to Call the turn and then fold on river. It's not a shame to just give up if you don't hit.

      Best Regards.
