      don't see a reason for you not to bet with a paired board especially if you up against 1 opponent. So nice hand!

      It seems to me you bet more than half your stack on the flop, so you should've just pushed there instead. No reason to see the turn cause you're going to go all in anyway :)

      Probability he has a J in his hand is (2/47)x2 = 4/47 = approx 1/10

      So it is pretty safe to c-bet 2/3 and go broke on the turn in this case.
      Do not bet Potsized as your wasting more BBs rather than betting out 1/2 or 2/3.

      Preflop; Ok
      Flop: Bet 2/3 as C-bet
      Turn: Go broke on any card that comes.

      What do you mean by "go broke"? Does that mean go all in?
      So I'd make a C-bet on the flop and I should fold if I got reraised at?

      When you hear the term "go broke" it means that you think you have the best hand and you are seeing it to the river no matter how big your opponent bets (ie, you raise, 3 and 4 bet every chance you get until you are all-in). In this case you make a c-bet 2/3 pot, and as this = half your stack you push instead. Giving free or cheep cards is a good way to get your aces cracked. This board is very very dry, so half your stack bet is fine too and push turn. Odds are 1/10 that you face a set... are you going to throw away the other 9/10 times due to fear of losing once? Lets say the board is A J J and your opponent has a J... he is "going broke" as there is no bet you can make to get him off his hand and you have the 2nd nuts.

      In this hand the villian probably has overcards or an under-pair, and simply does not believe you have a J either. Some donks also call anything, anytime anyway, so bet.

      Cool, thanks for all the replies. They were all very helpful.

      Now I'll give you the outcome of the hand: he did have the J. hahaha But oh well, it happens.

      I'll now wait for the next 9 times when he WON'T have the J. \o/

      sorry 'going broke' means Shoving, Pushing , Going All-in.

      There are several terms of putting your money in the middle (another one.. :D )

      Looking forward to more Sample hands of you :)
