      Hi,


      I wouldn't bet the turn. Sometimes he check/calls TT-QQ there, or even Kx inexplicably just because we fold too much if he bets it or something, and we don't know that he would actually take that line with worse hands like ~98s/77 preflop/on the flop and then check/call the turn with them. The only real value in betting the turn is to protect against hands like AQ that still have 6-outs. But some of the time those hands actually bluff at the K turn and people at microstakes are bad enough to attempt taking a bet/check/bet line as a bluff there as well, so actually I'd rather check behind the turn and probably call a river bet.

      As played I usually don't give people credit for going nuts with just TPTK on the turn so I think the river jam is thinner than you think, but it's microstakes so who knows. Certainly can't blame you for jamming there against an unknown.


      Hope it helps.
