      Villian posted bb early, after cbet a ten came and I felt he might have called hitting top pair to checked the turn thinking I was beat then the he checked I fired river which was a very stupid bet considering any draw got there plus if he had me beat with a ten why would I fire he shoved so no surprise there, I realise perhaps my isolation or squeeze perhaps should have been a bigger raise and after flop should I just check fold any help of how to play differently would be greatly apreciated thanks

      lot of rubbish thought procceses up there hope this makes sense

      Hello xJCzZ,

      Preflop: As long it's NL5, would likely consider raising a bit bigger here, 4BB+1 for the dead blind so, $0.25.

      Turn: If you plan to Call anyways, I wouldn't Check here, I would just keep barreling but it would likely be Bet/Fold.

      As played
      River: Unless I have good reads on him but what I don't expect that NL5 players are able to bluff in such situation, I'd also Bet/Fold there, nothing much to add.

      Best regards.
