      Hi EnterG,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We block certain FDs with the K so there are less potential draws in his range however we should still include some.

      I think that at these limits players are less likely to raise draws and he can have some Jx or sets and that turn, while it reduces the number of set combos, makes Jx beat our hand.

      So I think it is closer to a fold.

      Hello Bogdan!


      Didn't quite get it: fold the flop or turn?
      I agree, that on these limits villains X/R with semi-bluff rather rarely and I, most likely, would fold the flop. Even with out K

      Neveer folding flop against this loose guy who clearly isn't a tag post-flop, more like maniac/calling station.

      On turn we don't beat Jx anymore (which is definitely in his raising range) and sets are also continuing barreling. What do you want to gain by raising that turn? Is there any worse hand that calls you and can you make better ones to fold?

      Actually I don't think folding the flop is a huge mistake however, if villain has been aggro, we have to include Jx in his range and some draws. So we can call (or even 3-bet the flop). But as played the turn is the spot where we need to consider folding because we beat 0 hand from his value range now.
