      the guy looks like a maniac , or at least that likes to limp/bluff a lot of pots, I think I'm check/calling 3 streets since a turn raise is not getting called by worse hands and he may try to 3 barrel some crappy holding , that 3 on turn is a decent card since now you split with A6-AT

      Hello mbml,

      Stick to basic SSS and only Continue playing with TopPair Good Kicker (J++)

      If your 5 as a kicker comes near a Jack or higher as in cardranking, I am going to kill animals :D

      So easy muck post-flop

      Best regards,
