      I know that u say that 88 I can play this hand PF and just call from SB & BB but I like RR this hand preflop...
      what do u think about taking lead in this hand... or I should wait for his CB and check/raise him?
      what about river? Flush draw was completed... straight also was possible do u think that I should play pot control and just check/call?

      Hello BGawli,

      I guess I would likely Check/Raise it on such a board unless he is really somewhat passive opponent who doesn't CBet that often.

      But as played the river is rather Bet/Fold, we likely are beat by his hand there. I don't think that he is going to raise there anyways with just 2pairs.

      Best regards.

      so when I'm vs only one opponent and I'm OOP I should play check/raise...
      what about mutliwaypot? take a lead and bet vs more opponents and I'm OOP?

      Yes, vs one opponent we can more often consider even Check/Raising, although it's not really wrong to donk it either.

      what about mutliwaypot? take a lead and bet vs more opponents and I'm OOP?

      Against more opponents the problem can be that they may easily just Check their draws while being in multiway pot and we might just not protect enough. Therefore rather donk yourself.
