This is a discussion on $Freeroll NLHE MTT: Tough spot with two pair, gross river, how would you play the turn? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Hi all,
After some advice on a spot that comes up now and then. Hand history as per below:
Winning Poker Network (Yatahay) - 15/30 NL -
I'll leave the hand at the turn as this is where I had the trouble. Would you raise/jam this turn with the action here? Sb leading, BB calling and me on the button with top and bottom pair on a a board with a possible straight and possible better two pair. I think raising is spewy but curious to hear what others think as I always wonder, should I jam here? I put the SB on some kind of a made hand and the BB on a drawing hand, so it is very likely I have the best hand here and my jam on the turn will get called with me as a favourite.

Bet the Flop for value and hopefully get an honest response. You clearly miss out on value if you always check behind and give them the opportunity to catch up. KJ, K9s, J8s, etc. So many hands will call your flop+turn bet and you can easily x back the R if there is a bad runout.
How do you get chips, if not by betting two pair? Ofc they can have better two pair. They can also have a flopped straight. But this is poker. Dont miss out in too much value
