      Turn: ($9.05) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.00, Hero calls $2.00.

      River: ($13.05) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $4.73(All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $13.05.

      I really hated calling the turn. Villain seemed slightly LAGy/unreasonable, so i called in case he was semi-bluffing. In retrospect i dont see him bluffing on this board that often, and it's often an A or better.

      Hi,


      Crappy spot really. It's possible villain has some sort of gutshot/flushdraw when he calls that flop especially if he's screwing around a lot, so might actually have to call on the turn getting 5.5:1. The problem is that if he's capable of bluffing the turn with those hands, chances are he's also very likely to desperation jam the river with them, so I'd tend to think we might have to call that off as well.

      What tips the balance for me is that most players that decide to bluff the turn with only 2/3 pot left will usually just shove, so overall I think it's more likely he's valuebetting something and just trying to sucker us in with cheap bets. This will be a bad assumption against people who are obsessed with protection tho, so be careful.

      I think just folding the turn regardless is sad and probably a bit weak, but if it can prevent us from making bad decision out of position for the remaining 60bb, it might be the cleanest way to deal with that spot.


      Hope it helps.
