      Bet/fold turn? After his line I wont be ahead too many times if any, and I dont have implied odds for the call, given that he has 2.28€ left after the checkraise.

      nice hand he could easily have J8 and KJ which actually blocks your outs to the straight. Clubs also counterfeit some of your outs.

      I like your turn bet cos he has so many random J9 and TJ and AT type of hands which you dominate. It would be bad if he were the type to overplay/overvalue pair+draw and against such players a fold would be a massive mistake so it's important to identify whether he is such a player (though I think most loose passive players here are strong).

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I like it as well, nothing much to comment here, instead Bet the turn whilst you could get value from draws and of course even from weaker pairs. Betting also secures that he wont be bluffing the river which might be difficult to call if he bets like €4 or so. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
