      Hello,

      villain is unknown.

      Flop- maybe I could have bet .16 because of the flushdraw. I decided to call and reevaluate on the turn because he only minraised.

      Turn- I decided to check behind and call a reasonable river bet.

      River- I think, this was the biggest bet I was willing to call. Was the call a mistake or could he bet something weaker than top pair OK kicker after my check on the turn? Or the real question is, could he raised the flop with something weaker, for example a flush draw :) ?

      Thanks and best wishes.

      Hello Dback357,

      Turn: I would rather just bet the turn myself for protection from any kind of draw and as well maybe even for free showdown.

      As played
      River: As you went for Check behind this kinda means you as well went for bluff-induce or something similar. Therefore I would likely as well Call it while he may even have some kind of bluffs in his hand.

      Best regards.
