      Flop: ($0.78) 4, 2, 5 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.55, MP3 calls $0.55.

      Turn: ($1.88) 9 (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.88.

      What should I do on the turn? I don't see many weaker hands paying me, so I bet small for thin value/protection against overcards/free showdown. Would betting bigger or checking behind for bluff induce be better?

      Hi,

      I would prefer b/f turn to then take my free showdown. Checking back for pot control is always fine, but there are a lot of bad river cards that could improve his hand or make turn too bad for calling big bet and for that reason I would rather bet turn myself (also it is good to balance out times when you have AK and barreling turn)

      best regards,
