      Should I have bet the turn? I don't see any fold equity.
      His bet makes no sense to me.
      I don't play with stats but I checked after and his 3-bet preflop is about 20%.
      It might make sense with AA, KK, JJ, maybe a SC?
      JJ makes the most sense because it completes the 4-straight and he might call the flop raise with that. Any other Jx would fold the flop right?

      Don't minraise on flop. Make a normal raise to something like 4,5$ and get it in if he 3-bets. If he just calls, I would check behind on every blank turn and rethink on river. You want to take the fold equity against JJ, TT, 99 and all random garbage that are still beating you on showdown.

      Hi,


      Hard to say, lots of different lines that could be optimal depending on how your villain plays postflop, from just calling the flop to plain shoving over his c-bet. If I don't have any idea what he'll do on various turn cards, I'll usually just shove the flop or raise bigger and call it off, depending on which I think has the most chance of getting him off hands that aren't Qx.

      As played assuming the flop pot c-bet is somewhat standard for him, he's at least sometimes giving up on the turn, so I would just jam with our likely very many outs once I get there.


      Hope it helps.
