      I should have folded preflop, but what do you think about the way i played it? I raised the flop and bet turn because i thought i had some fold equity as well.. When he called the flop, i though that he has either two random overcards he doesnt wanna give up yet or a pair. When he called turn i was pretty sure he had a pair, so on the river i just gave up, i dont think he would have folded if i pushed.

      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: I don't like the Call that much, I'd prefer to 3bet there against a stealer.

      As played
      Flop: As you Called preflop then you have to search such ways as Check/Raise flop or something to make the calling of such hands profitable.
      Turn: As long he didn't give it up, I might very often just consider even giving up here but if you want to continue the hand anyway then you can likely 2nd barrel thats much better than Check/Calling but usually I consider him just checking behind most of the weak hands.

      Best regards.
