      Hey benaars,

      bet the turn rather the X/C and do it for a free showdown.He should still have weaker Ax hands in his range.
      As played:
      Since you called the turn you should also consider calling on a blank river so especially with such odds. But again the mistake was on the turn.

      Best regards,

      Hello benaars,

      Preflop: I'd raise it to even $0,70.
      Postflop: Rather 2nd barrel your hand than turn it into bluff. We might still need to protect our hand and get value from worse. Otherwise you turned your hand into bluff-catcher and should answer yourself the question either you are ahead and if he is capable of bluffing, cause I don't really see him betting with a lot weaker Ax there for value.

      Best Regards.
