      Hello,

      You could bet less on turn, ~$7 would be enough.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I think 6$ is enough on the turn- that makes perfect stack sizes to shove river.

      Hi,

      In the last days, i have been afraid (more than i should) of draws. If i raise the flop, i must have a J, so, why does BB call ? Does he have QT ? Probably. I didn't want to see the river....

      Was i too scared ?

      Regards

      i think so... based on the fundamental theorem of hold'em you want your opponent to act differently from what he would do if he could see your hole cards... so you want him to draw (but not for the right price) ... this huge bets gets him off the hook and you don't get that extra money

      your big bet forces him to make the correct play, so i would bet less and hope he tries to catch his draw...

      just defend correctly against that most likely draw and maybe it also has the benefit that a weaker hand (not the draw) pays you off on the turn

      He could hold there QT or T8, but easily he could hold there lower pp or 9x and called on the flop, because he though that you were bluffing.
