      I can see this as a tough spot, actually. I think he would definitely call the flop w JK, AT, sometimes he has even AQ (fish sometimes limp it). He may also have some KQ :club: type of hand here, but I don't believe it so much. Guess he would bet with 66 and TT on flop already, so they don't belong in his range that often. And maybe he limped hands like Q6s or 6Ts?

      I think this could actually be a fold, unless you know that your opponent can overplay his Ax-type of hands. There's just so wide range that can beat us here on turn.

      i think that the flop should be bet bigger, like $0.38-pot, just because we can.
      this is a board where a lot of his continuing range should be relatively indifferent to bet sizing.

      most likely at least all Qx, KJ, AT don't care if it's $0.30 or $0.38, maybe even some gutshots as he is not fully stacked.
      i don't think you gain a lot of extra calls from betting smaller to make it worth it.

      when he raises us on the turn though it's unfortunate, but i don't see many hands that we beat. that is a card that improves a lot of his flop calling range.
      worse twopairs are quite unlikely (Q6/T6), KJ got there, AQ, AT, maybe even A6 got there, he might do this with 66 sometimes, and if he spiked his ace with something like AJ he most likely wouldn't raise.

      i don't see him bluffing like that either, so i fold without feeling too bad about it. :f_biggrin:
