      Hi,


      C-bet bigger on the flop, more like $0.2.

      As played don't just call the turn it's pointless, either jam it in or fold. If he's a fish jam, he'll have enough worse hands that he's spazzing out with to warrant you felting TPTK. If he's a reg quite frankly it looks like AQ or a slowplayed set almost always, even if somehow it's just a combodraw like JdTd he still has a million outs, so I'm folding.


      Hope it helps.

      Thanks, that actually makes sense to me now that I see it.

      Just a quick question, if I put him on a combodraw such as JdTd, why would me folding be better? Since he is the one drawing to 15 outs?

      Thanks in advance :)

      Problem with combo draws that players at nl 2 won´t really raise enough times with draws, even monster draws on the turn. They would rather like to hit their hand and then raise for value not as semibluff. SO folding turn is better, since usually you´re against two pair+ not against strong draws.
      I would consider shoving turn if I think player can also raise there smt like Adxd or sometimes pure bluff or just Ax, but mostly it should be b/f
