      didn't particularly like the flop with str8's and flush draws.....should i raise flop to protect there? pick up 2 pair on the turn then but still not happy so think i should fold here.....villain is passive so its obvious he has something......then river fold is fine

      villains stats is 52/1/10/0.0

      Hello ockerdoc,

      Flop: Nah, I don't really like the raise here, we are turning our hand just into bluff for the reason that we don't plan to go broke. And as well he could easily 3bet us. Plus with just calling we also keep the pot smaller.
      Turn: That's kinda close, I guess I'd just fold it, any flush beats us, any 9 beats us. Although it could be possible that he sometimes picks such a line as well with 2pairs, therefore it's kinda marginal. Would be just bad when we face another on river, that's what will get us into trouble. Therefore I guess just folding here is sometimes even safer.
      River: Likely fold, as you did. We too often behind here.

      Best regards.
