      ok this was a misclick so I made a min bet. Other then that, should I have pushed turn or call? I can't consider myself having initiative right (since my preflop raise was weak and I checked flop)?

      Preflop, you said yourself...

      Postflop, you can't c-bet flop with trash against 2, so check is fine, but on the turn you hit your FD, and you should turn your aggression back ON. I think reraise and push are close, since you have quite big stack and the pot is rather small, but push would be my option to maximize FE.

      I'd fold the turn.

      1)BU is still to act.

      2)Implied odds are not necessarily that good with one card flushes.

      I wouldn't raise either.

      1) SB is showing some strength (he might have been going for c/r on flop).

      2)Sometimes we will lose value versus dominated draws.

      3)The pot is not huge.

      4)Don't know if the SB is capable of bet-folding.

      5)If we get 3bet our hand is dog-meat.

      IMO, fold>call>raise

      This hand would play an awful lot better if we could swap seats with BU.

      I agree with nunki, raising is not good imo , and we don't get odds or implied odds to call for a 1 card flush draw so calling is not good either.

      Hello mbml,

      Give up the hand on the Turn, your call is -EV due Pot odds etc.

      Best regards,
