      Flops top 2 with all 3 spades. Calls flop C-bet from Villain and raised for protection on turn for spade draw.. Realized I should have raised on flop instead if I really wanna protect..

      If I just called flop, I guess it would just be better to call turn as well? If not, then I should have raised from flop in the first place?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      I'd just Check/Raise the flop and played for stacks and when he just calls then donk myself on turn. As played I'd Check/Raise bigger on turn, ~$2. Otherwise as well going to Check the river and hope to see a free showdown.

      Best regards.
