      Hero (MP): $21.20 (106 bb)
      CO: $49.32 (246.6 bb)
      BTN: $24.42 (122.1 bb)

      BB: $26.97 (134.9 bb)
      UTG: $22.55 (112.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.80, 3 folds, BB calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.70) Q 3 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($1.70) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.30, BB raises to $3, Hero ?
      Played vs unknown, I xb flop because I don't expect many fds in his range, there probably arent many worse Qx hands and the 44-JJ won't call me on 3 streets so the plan was xb flop, cbet turn and cbet 1/2 river on non scary card for PP, his raise on the turn was quite wierd - probably Qx,3x,99,some PP would have bet on the turn therefore the stuff that makes most sense is clubs draw and random bluffs but if I call here I gonna have to call on most rivers aswell vs unknown who might be doing strange slowplays... Is it ok to fold it here?

      Hello Lucker9200,

      You would Bet with even bluffs in those spots, so why not CB the flop? Instead rather turn it into bluff-catcher and then on a turn ask "what should I do no".

      You kinda induced him to bluff against you so you really have to ask yourself what's the most profitable line. Either saving the money or continue whilst we are also representing a narrow range + he does the same.

      Best Regards.
