      Howdy,

      Make it more preflop, at least 3xBB.

      I think you can bet turn for value and protection for sure as he may still have FD/SD/Tx he's going to call with, but he may check behind to get a free card.

      As played with c/c turn it doesn't make much sense to bet river, because it's pretty hard for him to call with anything much worse, because FD completed, there's 4 cards straight out here, so he will fold a lot of his worse holdings here against a bet. I'd even doubt he will be worse here by himself, so I think c/f is fine against a shove as he doesn't seem like spewmachine.

      Good luck!

      Thanks, very interesting comments. Looking back on the hand, I should have bet on the turn, that was too passive by me.

      As for the river, I think I was too excited to see that I had hit a straight to note that the flush draw had also just come in. Pretty stupid!

      Pre-flop I'm pretty sure it was a 2*BB bet as I'm doing Chris Ferguson's full tilt academy challenge on pre-flop play. I had to bet 2*BB from early position in order to tick the box!
