      The preflop vs unknown is too loose. Because we will get many hard situations postflop.

      And the flop is awful. It is just spot to check-fold that hand or just for blockbetting and going to showdown as cheap as possible.
      The turn raise is never a set. Just look at this board. I think it is almost always J or flush. And Jack here has often a flushdraw. For opponent it's just a freeroll. And all these hard decisions are because of stupid overplaying hand preflop without reads and stats.
      The idea to catch bluff here is also bad.

      It seems fold after such action on the turn is the best decision. I think also bet-fold is ok.

      Hi Adasko,

      Preflop: since we are OOP, it is a bit loose to open this hand (without info).

      Postflop: Small flushes can also be part of his range (as well as bigger ones and AJ). I think we are at best splitting when we call that turn and there are so many hands that beat us and so many Jx + flush draw that we should insta muck our hand.

      I see.
      Could you just guys explain to me what would be the reason for made flush to bet the Turn there?

      ps: I often Raise limpers preflop with a very wide range, cuz the like to limp-call and then fold to CB on many boards all day long. I know it's unknown player, but is limping not = fish? :)
