      SB: $10.64 (106.4 bb)
      BB: $65.76 (657.6 bb) 62/11/1.7/6.0/32/473 Flop call C-Bet 51%(74) Flop raise C-Bet 14% Turn call C-bet 63%(19) Turn Raise C-bet 11% W$SD 42%(83)
      Hero (UTG): $10 (100 bb) 19/17/4.0/3.3/0/102
      MP: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $15.20 (152 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A K
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO calls $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.50) 4 J K (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1.10, 3 folds, BB calls $1.10

      Turn: ($3.70) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      I was a bit scared to bet the turn because of the stupid turn card. I think he could have many Jx hands in his flop calling range. So should I be playing for pot control here on or should I go for sweet value on all three streets against this guy only folding when he raises.

      River: ($3.70) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.80, BB folds

      Results:
      $3.70 pot ($0.17 rake)
      Final Board: 4 J K J 2
      BB mucked and lost (-$1.40 net)
      Hero mucked A K and won $3.53 ($2.13 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      You have to Bet the turn as well rather protect & get value from worse Kx + avoid the huge bet on the river which may be difficult to call-down.

      Best Regards.
