      I saw a bet on turn absolutely necessary on turn to both protect against draws and get some value from wost PP, (it is a bet/fold ofc)

      Do you agree with the bet there?What about the size of it?

      Hi, cozacu,

      Personally, in this case I would place pot control higher than protection. Imo, turn bet would be justified with some fold equity on top of it, but it's not the case.

      Also, after you raised the flop, it's very difficult to extract value from pocket JJ on a King-high board.

      Hi Cozacu,

      Preflop: looks fine

      While I agree with your turn bet I do not agree with the min raise on the flop. What's the purpose? If we do it for value it can be bigger and should be bigger.

      As played I'd check back most rivers.
