    You need to fold turn, not only because nobody bluffs on a turn minraise, but also because villains range hits hard on that board.
    Only a 9x, full house and 67 make sense there for him to have.
    So yeah I know it's tough folding jacks anywhere, but fold turn because you are drawing very thin.

      Hi Shyko,

      I think GamblingProp is right the turn check-raise is unlikely to be a bluff. They had two opportunities to bluff on the flop with a donk or check-raise which they didn't take.

      So you would need to be able to beat some hands that they check-raise for value. I really don't think there are many.

      If you had stats on the guy and he was a maniac maybe you could call the turn since it's pretty small. But the river shove is way to big. I haven't seen a lot of people bluffing allin with nothing first hand in the $3.50 45mans.

      Good fold.

      Quad Bracelet Winner
