      Hello gonepoker,

      Don't really like the bet size on turn. You can't really represent much with it unless you tried to induce him to bluff against you. If you had a strong hand then I am pretty sure you would be more inclined to bet yourself rather stronger.

      As played, doesn't make sense. Guess if you had the Kx or 8x then you would just bet yourself than Check/Raise it. He may still Call you with a lot of holdings and you can't expect him to bet here anyways. Guess he called you with A high or maybe even with some TT-QQ. :) So basically I'd just Check/Fold myself on river.

      Best regards.

      Thanks Veriz. Actually there is some kind of error I am sure that my bet was bigger. Yeah that check raise idea was sign of my tiltcreativeness:D
      Do you think betting 1.20 is ok to get value from ace high? Also actually he had nuts - AK :f_confused:

      with a high he would likely call 0.6$ valuebet. 1.2$ seems a little too big to call down with A high
