      Hello Filipstan,

      Once again, good to see new names posting hands. :)

      What were you thinking or what was the reason for raising on flop? Did you have any early reads on him? More often I'd just Call the flop and reevaluate turn but as played then we have to fold the turn since he is showing way too much strength, we are likely behind.

      Best regards.

      He was always betting first on the flop no matter what, thats the resson i reraise him to see how strong he is.

      Okey, I see the point but still what hands do you expect to continue if you raise? Just Call and let him continue his bluffs, you get with it a lot more value.
