      Hero checks, CO checks


      Only bet 1/2 pot on flop to hopefully get a caller, bet more?
      Bet 3/4 on the turn to build a pot, even with the paired board i was planning to ship it if re-raised. Should i have bet pot or even over bet? Would getting it all in if re-raised be a mistake at these limits?
      Ugly river and was planning to check fold or make a crying call if villain bet small, say < 1/4 pot.

      Hello parry,

      Flop: Bet pot to build up the pot.

      As played
      Turn: Likely fine, I would still keep barreling.
      River: Checking here is totally fine and reevaluating according his bet, since he will have hard time Calling our Bet and likely even wont Call with worse.

      Best regards.

      Just trying to figure out why you play so cautiously on the river. I'm thinking you should be ahead with the straight as it's well disguised.

      I assume you're worried he has a j or 8?

      not saying you played it wrong just curious

      I explained already, which hands are going to Call your Bet on river? As long we are against an unknown. There aren't many hands what would Call our Bet on river, therefore they might be able to bluff smallish or something similar. Against a big bet we have an easily fold since it's a freeplay, I wouldn't really risk there with my money. :)

      What could he call with that the straight is beating and if i was raised i would of had to fold. With checking i was trying to get a cheaper showdown.

      PKR doesn't show the mucked cards but i assume they had a ten or busted flush neither of which i don't think would of called another bet
