      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP2 with Q :diamond: A :diamond:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 4 :club: A :club: J :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.45, SB calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.60) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB raises to $2.11 all in, Hero calls $1.31

      I am bothered I didn't fold on the turn since the villain had 55 and hit trips. But still, can someone tell me if this was the right call and did I bet correctly on the turn?

      You're pretty much forced to play it that way, you can't check that turn to him or you'll miss value against worse Ax/draws, and once you bet you get great odds when he shoves so you have to call it off unless he only has sets/AQ/AK, which isn't gonna be true for the overwhelming majority of the bad players out there.

      I'd probably make it $0.5 on the turn and just shove the turn against his stack size tho, unless i knew i could induce a bluff shove on his part by betting weak, but i'm never folding.

      Hope it helps.
