      30/15 guy, AF:4, just 28 hands.

      Does my turn bet is too thin? I thought he can call with some overcards, smaller pockets, some turned gutshots or FD's.

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think your turn is definitely too thin, at least make it 1/2 pot or even less.

      2nd pair from flop now beats us and you are literally targeting 3rd pair or worse and some overcards which are rarely calling without FD.
