      My call on the river was awful. I should remember that anything (weird 2 pair, flush, straight) is possible in an unraised pot, but I stupidly talked myself into going for the hero bluffcatcher. Not much more to say about that. But what about turn - probably should even fold there after the minraise, no?

      Hello member001,

      Flop: Why didn't you bet it here? Bet it to protect your hand.
      Turn: Likely just Bet/Fold, not worth to continue here while flush is possible better Qx is possible and of course 2pairs/sets are possible as well.

      As played
      River: Check/Fold, we don't beat much than bluff but I don't expect the opponents that often to bluff in freeplay.

      Best regards.
