I decided to check and take the pot control because J 10 was very possible there . On river I planned to check fold but I couldn't fold to that min raise .Do you think it was ok how I played this hand ??

      Hello alexgrapid,

      Turn: I'd basically just Bet/Fold the turn myself, don't really see from what we should take pot control there. When he raises then we are beat and if not then we can continue and reevaluate what actions we gonna take on river.

      As played
      River: For the given I guess it's not that wrong. I expect him to more often bet the turn when he had there straight and therefore worse 2 pairs are as well possible in his range. I'd as well Bet/Call, don't really see why we should Check/Fold with 2pairs when we even didn't bet the turn.

      Best regards.
