      Hey exorcism,

      I would prefer to fold to this small turn bet, because on such a board I give you 4 clean outs and for this you don't get the odds to call despite very good odds in general. And another important thing, if you call and hit A or K you will often have reverse implied odds on this board, because you will hardly give up your hand, but your hand will only be second best.

      If you call turn for tens as outs, then you could possibly call, because of the implied odds you get, this means, you are able to give up your hand if you hit A or K. But as this is marginal, I prefer to fold.

      As played, nice hand on the river.

      Regards,
