      Usually turn raises are made with the nuts. And this is a limp pot.

      Turn is a tough spot. We only have 3 options here:
      1) Shoving Turn, because we think he could have some combodraws as well, or maybe worse 2pairs like 84s or J4.
      2) Calling the raise, but we have to call on blank rivers when draws missed
      3) Folding immediately because we think we are crushed.

      No info is provided, but we can probably conclude that CO is a fish. I think option 2 is the worse, so we either shove now, or fold.

      I slightly prefer shoving when there are 2 flush draws out there and we could potentially be ahead still with our two pairs. With a stronger 2 pair like A8/AJ i would probably never fold here.
