      I'm not sure there's any point in my 'tester' bet on the turn. Presumably I have to fold to the 3bet here?

      Hi Tim64,

      CO seems rather loose but posting means a random hand and KJ a reasonable hand. So I would steal here betting maybe $1.5-$2 preflop to try and steal. I would not limp this hand with only one poster, because you are OOP and would not know where you stand on the flop.

      If he calls then you could push the flop because your stack is so small. You will be mostly in front with the top pair and will be called by draws.

      As played the turn is a very bad card and I would give up the hand. Any flush draw have you beat. If you think that you have the best hand then push all in before he puts you to the decision to call an all-in, because you won't see the showdown without being all in. From your min bet its obvious that you are scared about the flush.

      Interesting hand, lets see what the judges say.

      Gl!

      I prefer making an isolation raise or just fold pf rather then limp in this spot (BB looks tight enough to make an isolation raise work).
      Then if you get called you can ship it on the flop.
      As played: that 1BB bet is just screaming : "I'm weak, just raise me and I would fold". (which gives a weaker hand an oppritunty to bluff you out of the pot)
      I would sadly just C/F this nasty turn card.

      I agree

      Just raise to $2-$2.25 and you don't have to rebuy manually ^^

      As played, shove Turn as though YOU have the Flush in my opinion

      Best regards,
