      A bit unsure about the goal of our flop bet. Here i made it as a bluff, if i got raised i would fold, maybe called a min-raise, but i suppose that could be a mistake too. On turn it turns into a value bet for me. Are we comfortable stacking off here? And what do we do if the river comes an unsuited A or K? If it's a blank then going broke here is ok IMO...

      Hello Pichux,

      Preflop: According to SHC your raise is a bit too loose since we are playing against a Calling station as I understand, I would more often prefer to fold, since the postflop experience ain't that good for you right now I guess.

      As played
      Flop: Sure, you can bet here since he could still Call with worse and also we have a backdoor. But I wouldn't Call his min-raise more often just prefer to fold against it.
      Turn: Since we are that deep, I wouldn't never go broke here, more often take pot control and reevaluate river.
      River: The A or K on river really bad card for us and therefore I'd prefer to take the free showdown there and hope to be ahead.

      Best regards.
