      Don't think raising the flop was the best play right? Rather call so not to isolate vs better hands.

      Anything else I should have done differently?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Flop: Nah, I don't really like the raise here, you basically just isolating yourself against better hands. What's your plan if you get 3bet?

      As played
      Turn: As you went for value on flop then why not CBet here? We still need to protect from overcards and get value from whatever you wanted to get on flop.

      As played if turn was Checked
      River: Guess there is not much to do as you went for such a line. Of course we don't beat many hands but just basically he may still bet even with bluff/missed draws. That's as well why I would rather bet myself on turn not just for protection but as well for free showdown.

      Best regards.
