Never raising turn here, nothing you beat would call. Obvious fold OTR as nothing what you could beat would have called turn raise.

On that kind of flop sizing MW I'd make a small raise. Is there a lot worse that will call, no? But MW on a small flop bet, this protects your hand, takes control of it, and will allow you to pot control on later streets, and get away from your hand if your opponent does shove. Your other option is call in a sandwiched position which will get really odd on the turn. I prefer to avoid that.
Also against a fish, you will get 2 checked streets a lot if they do call the flop raise. If they don't, then you can decide based on sizing if you're calling another street, but usually folding is best if they show further aggression later. It ends up being a cheaper way to play a mediocre and vulnerable hand MW.
As played, probably calling the river. The sizing is really strange, but he's a fish. He could think he's value blocking with some worse hands or he's just being a donk.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Bloffcach?
Yes i noticed the wierd sizing (AQ, AK,AJs,KQs) and if the river is like a 9 or T i probably call .
Yes. Potcontrol is would be nice here on flop with a little rise.
Thx for the opinions!

If you're raising anywhere, raise the flop, imo.
Given that he's betting into two opponents after having open-raised UTG, I'd like a fold on the turn, not a raise.
