      Flop: plan check/fold, delighted to get a free card
      Turn: more unnecessary slowplay from me, I now think I should have just kept raising it up rather than give him odds for possible draws as I did

      Hello member001,

      You could bet the turn a bit bigger like $0,20 and I guess I'd also Call the raise on turn since I don't really get his line and time to time he might be having a straight there which ain't that likely. But you can never be sure what those kind of players have, although I guess sometimes if the opponent would be even worse player I might even just get it in on turn. But otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best regards.
