      after he checks on flop i was thinking he didnt flop anything,flop was not draw heavy so i just check hoping he will hit something like pair,then on turn i think he got pair and it was possible flush draw so i raise.. pot on flop was not promising :f_smile:

      btw he raise on turn,did i make to low bet?

      Fish doesn't bet easily even they hit.... I think slowplaying and betting are close in this situation but I prefer betting. Because fish likes to chase even one over card (3 outer) draws...

      Hello crodady,

      Flop: Since we want to get his whole stack by that I mean maximum what we can get, I'd just bet it here to stat building up the pot.
      Turn: Raising size is totally fine, hopefully he has a hand with what he is going to continue.
      River: You could even bet bigger here, ~$1 he should be able to Call also, because of his stats maybe even more.

      Best regards.
