      only 6 hands on villain.


      I think my mistake here is I bet small on the turn.
      can I fold to his 2x raise on the turn ?


      I just go ' what is this hand ?! '

      Most of the time it's ok to fold here on the turn.

      Yes you are getting a great price - but if you are drawing dead vs a set it doesn't really matter what price you are getting

      Try not to level yourself with your small turn bet. It does seem that you could potentially have induced a semi-bluff-raise on the turn with your small bet. In reality it's not as likely as you might think. He probably has AJ or better.

      If he was semi-bluffing a big part of that range would be hearts, which get there on the river. The rest of the time it'd be a hand like KQ. In terms of combinations it's more likely your opponent holds a heart draw. Also in terms of frequencies, players will always bet a heart flush on the river, but might chicken-out of a river barrel with a missed bluff like KQ. So while your turn call might be ok vs an opponent who might semi-bluff, you have to check fold such a terrible river.

      Hello SneakyhanD,

      Even if we face a min-raise on the turn I'd still Bet/Fold it than Bet/Call, you don't really have much equity vs his made hand range. And why would you Call the river?

      Best Regards.
