      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      Hero (UTG) ($12.66)
      MP ($3.79)
      CO ($9.90)
      Button ($12)
      SB ($10.72)
      BB ($5)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with J, A
      Hero bets $0.40, MP calls $0.40, 1 fold, Button calls $0.40, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.35) 6, A, 9 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, MP calls $0.80, 1 fold

      Turn: ($2.95) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, MP raises to $2.59 (All-In), Hero calls $0.79

      River: ($8.13) 3 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $8.13 | Rake: $0.37

      Villain is loose passive after 100+ hands. Limps and calls behind OOP a lot.
      Don't like my bet on the turn at all, but my logic was to protect against flush draw. So I was thinking a bit..
      Check/Call or Check/Fold here?

      Villain showed AA btw

      Hi Crox,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Looks fine. Board is connected and a lot worse can call. We can even make it slightly bigger.

      Turn: Why don't we like our bet on the turn considering his stack? The only thing I don't like about our bet is that we don't shove.

      I'd make it 2.59 there (or make it bigger on flop and just bet AI turn).

      Plenty worse can call given his stack size of just 38 BB preflop.

      I guess I don't like the turn bet because I lost! But shoving seems best now I consider his stack size properly.
