      Hi,
      How to play in similar situations?
      Should I re-raise flop? he is minraising, it really dont look like he raise to protect his hand against :diamond:
      But I decided to see next card and see what he does, if he checks and card isnt :diamond: so I bet.
      And after he calls can I bet river? I wanted to bet but pot already was big so i decided to check.

      Hello daun666,

      Nah, I wouldn't really 3be the flop there. At the best I would play the same as you did. Nice hand! River Check is usually for me to be curious what hand he had. :)

      Best regards.
