      Villain is call station like player 30/12, ag f 2 only few hands but he was not full stacked so for sure not strong reg player.
      So i guess i could never learn i told myself i would bet and if i get raised just fold but then i started thinking how many 9 for utg he limp calls maybe some A9s so i convice myself that he is over playing some Aj , but bottom point is i should find fold here right dispite odds and stuff cause i am almost never good here ( what range do you give him here he showed very unecpected hand i was surprised )

      Hi Dzikson,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Looks fine but versus fishy player we can close to pot this.

      Turn: Default is to always bet fold but we are betting small so we may be inducing him to raise lighter (even Jx). My question is: why do we bet so small? He still has plenty of worse that can call, and all his calling range can call more, at least $4.2-$4.7.

      So yes the plan is to bet/fold unless we have reasons to believe he can raise worse or bluff a lot. And in this case, the only reason may be the small bet size that we use on the turn that may induce him.
