      Opponent seems pretty reg-ish. 18/15/3.0 with 22% WTS

      Think preflop and flop are fine (confirmation of this would be appreciated). I think mostly when he just calls on the flop he has like AK or AQ so the turn card wasn't good for me but I felt like I had to call because my hand was soo good. On the river any ace he'd open with beats me, as does any hand with a jack in it. So turn was the real trouble for me.

      Hello fryandspicy,

      Flop: Check/Raise on flop should be bigger ~$1,50 would be mine which is pot size. Way too many draws out there.
      Turn: Rather Bet/Fold it than go for Check/Call mode. He may easily just start bluffing now and will likely continue on river as well and we will never know where we stand. Plus you may even get free showdown.

      Best regards.
