20/20 36 hands
Is folding the turn too weak?
If we call what's the plan on the river? on what cards and what sizes do we call or fold?

Way too weak.

I honestly don't know why we would be checking this turn anyway. QQ-99 will still call the turns. Another flush draw has just arisen etc etc.

Bet/fold or check/call. I prefer bet/folding because people are too passive at 5nl.

This might well be a bad turn card for us. However it might also be a very good card because if villain is sat there with QQ/JJ, he's not going to fold to another bet because in their mind it's now less likely that we have AK or KK.

Our hand is too strong to check/fold, we can still extract value from worse hands so I'd just bet/fold here, about half pot seems OK as this gives us room to check/call a smallish bet on the river and fold to a shove.
