      Hi,

      No I think checking back is fine. Chances are with 4 players on the flop one of them has a flushdraw or is reluctant to call Jx twice.

      As played sizing seems OK-ish, perhaps we can slightly bigger. We definitely don't want to make it so big that they have an excuse to fold Jx though.

      Oh and loosen up preflop. 17/15 is way too nitty for 6max.

      ifs

      those stats aren't right. I don't know why they are displayed.

      I'm playing like 25/21 or something similar

      Betting turn is thin I guess, but what do we gain with checking turn? BB seems like a station, so he could definitely call with Jx, especially with holding a .
      Plus the board could only get worse for us, so we could face pretty tough decision if someone bets on the river 3way, even if rivercard is a blank.

      All in all, wouldnt it be better to bet turn for thin value vs the fish, and for free showdown on the river if possible.

      No I don't think so. I think river is not super tough for us, we can easily fold on a spade or a ajack, and even if the river is none of those cards we can still quite easily find a fold if either of them bets big into us. So we save value vs a flush. We also don't really lose that much value vs Jx, since it's very unlikely we'll get 3 streets from that anyway. Betting turn and checking back river gains roughly as much as checking back turn and betting the river. You could make a case for the fact that he might call Jx on the turn, but if the river is a spade he will fold, but at the same time we will save money the times he has Jx with a spade and gets there on the river. So all in all I feel like checking back turn and betting river has more advantages compared to betting turn.
