      UTG: $10.87 (108.7 bb)
      MP: $11.78 (117.8 bb)
      CO: $15.63 (156.3 bb)
      BTN: $10.22 (102.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10.24 (102.4 bb)
      BB: $10.69 (106.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K T
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.70) 5 J T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60

      Turn: ($1.90) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.30, Hero folds

      $1.90 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J T 8
      CO mucked and won $1.81 ($0.91 net)
      Hero mucked K T and lost (-$0.90 net)

      I anticipate that i'm ahead of the CO's range here but i'm not sure what i should do postflop. Considering this should i raise preflop here? and then give up unless i hit a reasonable flop? or just fold? I don't like my call on the flop here. His bet is quite big but i guess i still felt like i was ahead. He could be doing this as a bluff with overcards, flush draws and small pocket pairs . My plan at this point was to re evaluate on the turn and see what he did on a blank. The turn card is a pretty terrible card to get, the flush gets there and hands like Q9 79 complete the straight not to mention the tonnes of two pairs he could have. I am well behind on this card so i gave up

      Hello legand73,

      Not the best card for us on the turn so therefore I like your line. If you are not sure what to do then simply 3bet it and find out how he adjusts. :)

      Best Regards.
