      c/mr = strong hands or air. I would call turn but I think I can find a fold on the river judging by my first assumption. I don't believe NL2 loose players think about triple barreling and basically about what opponent has. They just play their hand.

      I would call flop minraise, but I would think twice on turn. It makes Ax more unbelievable for him and if he's generally passive, but loose it seems like flush here. I think it's better to fold as there are a lot more flush combos in his range and those few times with Ax won't make it up.

      Agreed, if you can think about folding a blank river you might be better off folding the turn to begin with, as it's just extremely unlikely for unknowns at microstakes to go batshit insane in that spot all of a sudden and c/mr pot barrel A42mAo. If you think he's crazy or/and possibly doing that with Ax go ahead and jam the turn, otherwise I don't hate folding as while you hand looks strong in the absolute sense, it's relatively weak.


      Hope it helps.
