      I had bet on the turn and fold on any raise, maybe hero had had a chance for a free showdown then. Now you gave one card for free.

      Of course, if you had reads like he would fold on cbet, then that turn card is already a sign to stop betting. But you should absolutely fold on that river, any Jc or Q c (AQ, AJ, KQ, QQ, JJ) would beat you there, if they had clubs.

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Rather Bet the turn as well so you wouldn't have the problem on the river deciding what to do and either you are ahead.

      Best Regards.

      But his stack on the turn is 3$ and the turn pot size is 2$, it wouldn't make any sense to bet the turn and fold the river, no?
      I mean I'm committed (well, he is) already on the turn.
      So my question basically was, on such a turn do I want to go broke against this opponent?

      We can always adjust according his stack and make according to that the CB like 1/2 pot size. :) Hard to say either we can go broke vs him or not without even having any stats. I don't really know how he played cause I wasn't @ the tables.
