      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I like our raise versus the fishy guy.

      We could be scared that MP called but he also looks fishy so he could have worse TP and some draws.

      Turn: As played I'd rather bet/fold the turn, even if we bet 1/2 pot.

      No reason to check and let him decide how money goes in as we would have to play pretty straight forward.

      Any reason why you think a fishy is strong here? Can you not see worse Jx in his flop range?

      Yeah, he could have worse hands. So turn bet is for value...
      The problem is, that even if you bet half pot, 3.47$ is in the pot on the river (and we have 3.38$ behind). We can not bet/fold, the odds are going to be too great. And what if we check, and villain pushes? We are never ahead in these cases, and we created a too big pot for our 1p hand.

      Well you can still bet/fold if you can't expect villain to raise a lot of weaker hands (we would still have 60+ BBs behind, which is a lot).

      However most of the time I'd expect him to call us down with worse hands and there are plenty of those (all Jx)
