      Hi there,

      I'm not playing FR, but his check/call seems suspicious for me...unless he's able to open JQ, which he should not, I don't think he should check/call here.

      I would bet the turn again though, and fold on a raise...normally...but against such a short guy, we might call I guess... Why bet turn, because CO might call us with some 9x, Tx or draw, and we don't really want to see Q K A on the river.

      Maybe...just maybe...if we know UTG+1 well, and that he's a solid player that loves slowplaying...we might consider checking turn and river, and folding if he shoves over the CO's bet on some street. Just theoretically :f_biggrin:

      Hey RazDirk,

      Like Th334 says UTG+1 check/call flop is suspicious. If he had a decent draw he'd likely cbet.

      You likely have the best hand though and can extract value from worse. I would probably continue betting for value on the turn also. Unfortunately if UTG+1 jams turn you can't really fold seeing as you are so short.
