      Do you think c-c is ok here? probably should raise the flop maybe in case of flush draws etc then if he sticks around i knw i'm in trouble. Was hoping he had AK and i jus fig i had him beat. Also what about the call in the small blind?

      I don't really like the call preflop, he only has half a stack and he raises from utg, meaning you could easily be dominated. As played I would raise quite big, I play under the assumption flopped flushes don't exist and in this case if he has it you have 4 outs to the FH. You want to charge him for drawing to the flush, and he will call your raise with most of his range anyway probably, especially AK.

      Hello ockerdoc,

      Preflop: I do not like the Call here, his stack ain't worth it. :) Just fold it!

      As played
      Flop: As he was PFA, I'd rather Check/Raise it here against him, Check/Call doesn't make sense at all.

      As played if flop was Check/Called
      Turn: At least Check/Raise it here, and get value.

      As played if turn was Check/Called
      River: Just Check and hope now to have the best hand and not him to bet. :) Should be more aggressive, would have got a lot more value.

      Best regards.
