      Betting flop is for protection and partly for value. I agree with your line.

      Turn Q is ugly, I wouldn't bet here I would like to see free river. If he bets, I'm still calling.
      KQ, AJ and 44 are beating me at the moment (and badly played monsters) but I wouldn't play too aggressive since we're out of position and there are many rivers we don't like.

      River: We're going broke with this river.

      Bad luck man. Keep your chin up :)

      that fish is so lucky, got all my stack twice in 15 hands, he must love limping with QQ and playing in multiway pot. Set miner...

      :D don't chase him, just forgot about him and play your A game. There are plenty of other fishes - just take their money ;)

      Hello Saruniks,

      Turn: Usually I would go cautiously on turn, although the betting ain't that wrong but you could as well sometimes consider going for pot control since it's a freeplay pot.
      River: As you decide to Check it and he bets pot I would likely play it cautiously as well for the reason the he could easily have 44, KT, QT, or whatsoever hands. Therefore while it's just a freeplay I might even just Check/Call vs his pot size bet.

      Best regards.
