      I couldn't put him on a hand. AT is out, busted draws he doesn't bet. If he had set he would c/r me on the turn. There are some possible 2 pair combinations but with 5 coming out they've been counterfeited. Was really confused. :f_confused:

      Is betting turn so big a mistake? I was thinking of betting more on turn so if ugly river comes to check behind.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Flop: I guess I would put a bit bigger bet on flop ~$0,34 or something similar to have bigger protection and as well for value of course.
      Turn: And betting the turn is still definitely fine, we are likely doing it for protection and as well for free showdown and obvious value from some Tx type of hands or anything similar.
      River: For the given odds I guess Calling should be fine, definitely take a note with what he did that kind of block-bet. If he did that kind of block-bet with some weak pair then maybe in future we might be even able to raise it for value.

      Best regards.
