      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 = ($21.75)
      CO = ($6.28)
      BU (Hero) = ($14.14)
      SB = ($10.05)
      BB = ($9.70)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, A.
      MP3 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB calls $0.30, CO calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.25) T, J, 3 (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB folds, CO calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.25) K (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $4.90, CO calls $4.88.

      River: ($13.03) 5 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $13.03.

      Just wondering if I made the right play here on the turn.
      Opponent was loose passive and limp calling way too often preflp/chck calling marginal hands post flop. Should I have kept betting here to protect my hand? If I bet the turn turn I feel commited so I'm guessing this is a shove or fold situation?
      Am I better to chck/fld here given the straight possibilities ?
      Or was my shove on the turn the right play?

      Any help appreciated.

      Hello Ellzebub,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Here is some help for you how to convert hands and post them in correct format: link.

      Don't even see suits here so it's hard to comment what kind of board it is on the turn. But while the K also improves a lot of his range might even be more reasonable to take just pot control and Check it behind and then reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.
