      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 4 :spade: 4 :club:
      Hero raises to $0.25, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.97, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.72

      Flop: ($2.04) 2 :diamond: J :spade: 8 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.00, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($4.04) 8 :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.00 protecting vs AK. Or it doesnt make sense, because it only comes around 12% of the time?

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      Definitely fold the flop here.
      We can't really call another turn bet and there are almost no turn cards that we would love.

      As played, I'd check back the turn.
      No need to make the pot bigger since if he check folds here he has very little equity against us plus he can check/call with something like TT or even check/raise.
      Just check back and keep the pot smaller.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I doubt he Cbets <50% with a strong holding. That is why I wouldnt necersseraily give up on the flop.
      But dunno whether floating, or simply raising the turn is better. FLoating may be safer.

      Well this is a 3bet pot and people tend to bet more closely to 1/2 pot with their whole range rather than betting strong.

      Would anyone bet UNDER 50% with AA,KK,QQ,JJ here?
      I honestly cant imagine it.
      I understand that people tend to smaller, but would anyone bet under 50% with premiums?

      If that flop would be rainbow, then 50 %, if opponent is bluffing often versus smaller bets, I could bet less than 50 w AA/KK

      Well, I personally have no problems betting less than 50% on the flop.

      I would rather think that a smaller bet is a value bet, rather than a bluff bet, since if he wants to push us out of the hand he would rather bet bigger.
