      Hi.

      Vs a tight player and given starting positions i doubt u can bet the turn for value as he probably doesnt have worse offsuit aces than AJo. U should probably checkcall instead but as played i think u should definitely bet fold the turn.

      Thanks.

      I'd cbet flop a little bigger on such draw-heavy board, though. The sample of button is so small that you can't make too exact reads on him.
