      Hello theguy,

      I don't like the Check/Call on flop. Rather CBet it and might even gain fold equity vs him and make him fold. Otherwise turn is questionable, sometimes I might even Check/Raise there for value, but as played I'd make the crying Call on river as well, although I guess we at the best get a split and worst is that we are just behind vs 6x. And therefore sometimes even fold it on river since I played that passively and we haven't invested much into the pot.

      Best regards.
