      SB: $4.24 (84.8 bb)
      BB: $9.27 (185.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J A
      Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 calls $0.20, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.87) J 5 8 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, MP2 folds, CO calls $0.75, BTN folds

      Turn: ($2.37) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO raises to $5.36, Hero folds

      $5.37 pot ($0.29 rake)
      Final Board: J 5 8 7
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$2.45 net)
      CO mucked and won $5.08 ($2.63 net)

      CO Stats: VPIP: 56, PFR: 8, 3B: 4, AF: 1.0, Hands: 229

      I was in doubt here if betting again on turn or not due to the scary card... but he's so loose that I thought he could have called me with Jx or even 8x too, am I wrong?

      Personally I much prefer Bet/Folding turn than checking and seeing an even scarier river or having to call a bigger bet by him than you would have put in yourself.

      The player you describe plays 56% of his hands and if that is anything to go by will not want to give up a turned flushdraw if he picked one up, specially if its Q K or A high.

      I think you'll be surprised by what you'll see him call sometimes.

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      While a lot of draws got there, our only options are either we Check/Fold it there is no way to Check/Call it cause you rarely going to beat much then. Or either we do Bet/Fold it if we assume that he has a lot of worse hands in his range.

      Assuming that he is passive you could as well Check/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
