      I think it's ok, MP2 range is any two and CO can have Jx/Tx often I think. He may take this line with 22/44/TT/88/Q9/JJ as he's passive and betting rarely, but I don't like checking back as you should have best hand often and betting smallish anyway leaves you with too small stack to fold if he raises.

      I usually go for a turn bet too, because even a Q would be an awful card to see even if I'll have a set. As played, river is OK shove imo.

      Hey!


      Just shove turn. There are many hands that improved on this turn, such as 98, J9, T9. These hands will often call a shove on the turn (because they still have outs), but may fold to a river shove if they don't hit their straight.

      Besides, we do have to protect, since our hand is rather vulnerable.

      Cheers!
