      Why do you raise JTo from the SB then if you know CO won't fold anyway... you know you're gonna be playing the entire hand out of position. Just fold this pre-flop. And if you really do insist on raising this up pre-flop raise it to 70c... 4BB + 1BB for CO + 1BB for BU + 1BB cause your OOP.

      As played, ok I guess. If the river would've blanked (aka is not a club) I think you have to bet again thou because you might be able to get value from 8x etc.

      oh, this preflop raise was because of FTP academy challenge, usually I make it normal amount and here I would have called it otherwise.

      I agree mostly, tho if he really calls down light you're probably better off betting the turn again for value and checking the river to him if he's passive enough not to fire erratically on the river.

      Also the backdoor flush getting there isn't really a concern imo. Throwing in a valuebet somewhere is probably gonna be +ev anyway, but maybe thinner.


      Hope it helps.
