      you can't fold on the turn especially with the A :diamond: but also you can't raise as I think you're isolating vs a better range here (2pair, str8, flushes).
      On the river I don't see any hand that we beat so I'm folding even for those odds, his play on the turn really looks like KQd or KJ but now he dont even beat KQ so fold.

      This is a great hand to check/raise turn with if he's even slightly aggro (i.e. he will bet 98/QJ/KQ etc. here). You have no less than 20 outs vs top two, 13 against a set, and also drawing pretty live against a flush or a straight.

      He will bet/call off all his pair+draw combo's here, so it should be pretty profitable.

      yeah since b/f sucks with our equity I think c/rai is reasonable line
      as played: I´d also c/f river. Don´t see him betting there smt like KQ
