      Pretty unknown, played 0 out of 5 hands. His stack says he's rather weak.



      Here comes question 1 of this hand. Do I barrel here vs unknown without much equity? I did it to let him fold non J hands.

      He called the turn very quickly so I thought this was Jx all the time (or almost). So I decided to bet an amount to let him fold Jx...

      Advice please!

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Easy and simple rule for ya, don't try to bluff a loose opponent (according his stack). Therefore I'd just Check it behind on the turn. If you bet the turn then ship the river vs his stack if you want to make him fold some kind of made hands although I doubt that it's going to happen that he folds Jx. :D

      Best Regards.
