      Preflop std.
      Flop Villian bets 1/3 psb which I thought was very weak. I cant really raise because that would be a bluff or spew. I dont think bluffing multiway on such a wet board is +ev. On the other hand with potodds of 4.2:1 and and OESD + pair I believe folding is weak so I call.
      Turn comes the straight and I know I am very good. Again the very weak bet
      so I put him on FD or set looking for action. I raise hoping for the reraise.


      On the river I am begging for a call.

      Heyhello,

      I think shoving the Turn is also a viable option as it is the only street where you can get action from flushdraws. Also 2pairs+ might put you on a monster draw hence calling as well

      I think the way you played it is also fine but suboptimal EV wise :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      TY gerv

      About shiping the turn: I am a bit fishy and dont like to overbet the pot especially when I know I have villian crushed. :f_eek:
