      Hero bets $1.10, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled back ($1.10)


      MP2 was 18/10/0 over 70 with 5 AF.

      Preflop: value raise vs limper. Usually it's a lower PP so I get many easy folds.

      Flop: value bet.

      Turn: I was thinking whether this is a good spot to slowplay. I think I could get more money in by c/c or c/r the turn.
      However, if he has an ace he is not folding anyways. Nonetheless, ace would bet here. I could even do c/c turn and c/r river, I think.

      All in all, I should have slowed down here and given a guy a chance to bluff.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop iso is fine.

      Flop value bet is good.

      I agree with your comments about the turn. PP's that floated once are now folding. Stuff like KJ/JQ/89 may fold now that the board has paired damaging implied odds. Tx and good Ax will probably just bet anyway. So by checking you extract value from a wider range so long as villain is reasonably aggressive.
