      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, MP2 calls $0.40, 5 folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) J, 6, T (2 players)

      Turn: ($2.15) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, MP2 raises to $5.00, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.65.

      Was I right to fire again or should I just check down? It didn't feel that 8 could have helped much, so I fired again.

      Hi,


      Glad you didn't check that turn, it's fine. He'd have called again with Jx and flushdraws so it was a valuebet, when he raises he's telling you you're smoked, so we're gladly folding.

      Maybe sometimes he does that with some combodraws, but that means he still has a lot of equity against your hand, so it won't balance the times you're drawing dead against him. No reason to go further with the hand.


      Hope it helps.
