      Probably should fold on the turn?

      Hi Sasa1234,

      I'd probably raise the flop, he's loose and agressive but his bet is so weak, I'd make $1.50 and see what happens.

      But calling is not bad IMO, you do have 4 clean outs and the Aces and Kings might be outs as well.

      Turn I'd fold, he probably has something, it's difficult to know if the Aces and Kings are outs to you since he could be holding something like AT or KT (AQ and KQ are more unlikely, I think he'd raise them PF).

      After seeing hand results: Make a note on him! :D

      He played it like if he had the T and was scared of you having the Q.
      I prob fold the turn since a bluff would be larger here after you showed weakness by calling the flop.

      After seeing results it makes sense to play it like you did since hes aggressive and you still had some outs on the turn.
