      Bet bigger flop to 1.6€.
      Sieze of your bet says "oh damm I don't have J"

      To a mini raise I call, bigger bet I fold.

      River is tought, it depends.
      I might call or fold, you have a 40 hands on him so you should have at least few reads on him.

      I would just check turn, and bet river again if he checks behind. As played, would fold turn.

      I don't think that the bet sizing screaming "damn, I don't have a jack" is necessarily a bad thing.

      If he had a J, wouldn't he just call turn and wait for a bet on the river to raise, or just bet himself if I don't. I think that's a better line than his if he had a J. When he raised, I thought he just might have a pair between 44 and TT and when he saw the 2nd J was happy cause it made it less probable that I have a J. That's why I checked the river - to induce, he bet and I called cause only a J would call a raise, I think...or a backdoor flush.

      Hi,

      Sounds ok. Nothing suggests a 28/9/1.7 is capable of raising the turn as a bluff on such a dry yet, he might be capable of calling you twice without Jx tho, with backdoor clubs or flopped gutshots, maybe some stubborn pocket pairs as well. Either check to him or bet/fold it to ~$1.25.

      As played on the river you followed up with your turn call so that's fine by me, I just don't believe you should try and bluff-catch against people without reads on that particular turn card to begin with.


      Hope it helps.
