      Hi,


      On the turn we're usually behind with our TP2K and it's a committing raise, so unless you believe villain can overplay Jx with a monster line or somehow be on a (semi-)bluff there, you can probably dump it. Otherwise the plan is to just close your eyes and call down.

      As played on the river 5x is now even less likely and we beat 44, so really after calling the turn you have to call the river for that price you don't have a choice.


      Hope it helps.
