      Hi,


      You have absolutely zero implieds against his weak/blockbet-ish stab on the turn imo, and being out of position will force you to either donk a 4 flushed board into him or c/r him hoping he has a club to get paid. I think he'll rarely call anything unless he has a flush himself, and since he's most likely to play big cards with a Qc or Kc rather than stuff with the 2c in it, it could also get ugly for you when you hit. I don't think i would bother for a limp pot out of position.


      Hope it helps.

      What do I do on the turn if I have the Qc or Kc instead of the Jc?

      Hi,


      Then I beat more broadway clubs so i feel more confident in my draw, depending on how much of a calling station he is i'll probably just pot the turn, i think even him would bet top pair on the flop, so it's not unreasonable to think that we can get him off something by repping an ace or a club at this point. Coupled with the fact that we will hit sometimes on the river (either flush or Q/K is likely good) and that if he also happens to have a lone club our Q-high/K-high might even be good at showdown (more often than J-high that's for sure), i think it' worth taking a more aggressive approach with our equity on the turn.


      Hope it helps.
