      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($5.10)
      UTG+1 ($1.85)
      MP2 ($2.15)
      CO ($12.45)
      Button ($0.85)
      SB ($7.05)
      Hero (BB) ($1.70)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 9
      5 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.20) 5, 5, 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.60) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.40 (All-In), 1 fold

      Total pot: $0.60 | Rake: $0.05


      How much should I bet on the turn with such a passive player? Is the all-in too much in this case?

      Hi!

      that bet is definitely too large on the river, since the pot is just 0.6.

      I would suggest that you bet around 1/2 to 2/3 for value, since I doubt he has a better hand.

      i think betting 2/3 on the turn is enought in my opinion, more than enough to protect your hand since there's not flush draw, i don't think he has 7-8 but even then he has only like 3 outs, or a 6 has 2 outs.

      Hi dandy,

      Preflop: Ok
      Flop: Ok
      Turn: Go for the 2/3 pot like $0.4, so you can go all-in on the River.
      Just make your betsize accordingly to when you can ''legitimate'' all-in on the River/Turn. Overbetting the pot with a shove doesn't make sense and will attract worser hands than if you would bet less.
