      MP: $3.75
      CO: $5.10
      Hero (BTN): $10.00
      SB: $11.65
      BB: $4.15

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:club: K:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.10, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.50, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.15, 2 players) 3:diamond: J:spade: 7:heart:

      Turn: ($2.45, 2 players) 4:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.60, fold

      I'm reading up on Turn play right now. In this situation, am I narrowing his range too much?
      I think it may not be such a wet board to worry about giving a free turn card and hoping to induce a bluff?
      By betting the turn we are keeping protection, even from hands like AJ and so on. Am I missing value by betting the turn (or betting too much)?

      Hello,

      Preflop your raise is good.

      I'd bet around $0.7-$0.8 on the flop.

      I don't like the idea of checking the turn. We are missing value playing this way and I would play bet/bet/bet in this particular situation against this opponent.
      Your bet sizing on the turn looks fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
