      Nah I'd raise too to build the pot and protect, many cards would scare him on the river if he has something or air.

      And that raise pf on MP1 is too loose IMO, your opponents on the left must be tight.

      Hi Kruppe,

      I'd fold PF. That raise is way too loose as Tosh said, and there's no need to get fancy on NL50.

      As played, I'm betting $3 on the flop.

      Turn I'd raise too, but I'm not looking forward to protect here, a FD is very unlikely and if he's got a J or a Q he only has 4 outs, and if he's got two pair or a set, he's probably going all-in no matter how much you raise, so I'd make the raise smaller ($22), it makes it easier for him to call with just a K, and you can easily put him all-in on the river if he's got a stronger hand.

      You could also min-raise the turn, but IMO, if he's willing to call $18, he's gonna call a little bit more as well.
