      UTG: $6.93 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 2,8, Hands: 42

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with 6 :diamond: J :heart:
      4 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.20) J :spade: 2 :heart: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.60) J :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero raises to $1.40, SB folds

      What I don't like in my raise on the turn is that it makes my hand sort of obvious and easy to read, thus I guess that I very often have a lot of fold equity there. For that reason I probably also should have raised to a bit smaller amount in order not to force his PPs out. Since villain can still easily have a better Jx hand in that spot + sets a bigger raise only isolates me vs a stronger range. Although there is value from FDs.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Nah, raise it up and protect your hand. Don't really see any reason to let him catch something. :) His sizing rather is telling us that he has a draw.

      Best Regards.

      1) Could our raise sizing not have been a bit smaller in order not to fold out some PPs out of his range?
      2) Do you think villain has a draw here on the turn often? I am a bit confused about his flop potsize bet (would he make it so big with a draw?).
      3) I believe we are pretty much raise/folding on the turn, are we not? Tough to see villain reraising there with a weaker hand all that often.

      Doubt that it would change much.

      Do you think it's possible to answer that? :P

      Well, you can't really do anything else whilst assuming you will see him 3betting with strong made hands and we don't beat even many Jx hands.
