      You have made hand on the flop and the board is draw heavy, so you need to protect. When he reraises you, just shove for value/protection, he won't fold anyway and even if he does you win directly a significant pot.

      As played, you have to call turn.

      why do you call flop? are you really going to fold and overpair on turn when the pot is $65 and you have $17 left?

      jack is not a great card either but you cant fold, can you? shove flop and hand is over.

      didnt really think to push the flop,now looking back at hand would have been best play,used to do it all the time going through the limits to protect but have plain forgotten about it.thanks for reminding me,much appreciated.

      If Villain has a FD, you are winning 65% of the time!!!

      Why do you actually bet like $12.11 instead of $12 or $12.5 ??

      Remove the results please as they ain't important for Sample Hands.

      Best Regards,
      Gerv
