      Anonymous table, no info on villain. I played only about ten hands until this hand, nothing relevant.

      UTG: $50.50 (101 bb)
      MP: $111.18 (222.4 bb)
      CO: $57.56 (115.1 bb)
      BTN: $54.58 (109.2 bb)
      SB: $188.31 (376.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 J
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP folds, CO calls $1.50, BTN folds, SB calls $1.25, Hero raises to $7.50, 2 folds, SB calls $6

      Flop: ($18) A 7 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $9, SB calls $9

      Turn: ($36) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks,

      All in on the turn? Or check behind?

      What would be the pluses and minuses of both?

      Hey Gabin,

      Looks like somehow the hand got missed.

      Here are my 2cents:

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given SB cold called a raise and then a rather big 3-bet I would imagine he is mostly on some sort of pairs or Ax that doesn't want to 3-bet pre (let's say AQo, AJ, etc).

      Shiping it would mean that we are making a bet of almost $34 into a pot of $36 so in other words we are potting the turn. That really doesn't look like a bet we'd make for value so because of that alone I'm not to found of the shove. I would much rather underbet the flop slightly and set it up for 3 streets.

      So as played taking the free card is fine imo.
