      How to play this hand?
      Flop is superdry. I cheked because cant imagine what worse could call me here, mby mid pocket pairs or lower suited ace and I give chance to catch some pair on turn.
      Turn A, here I think I should checked again?
      Dont know why but I bet :D
      He raise me, now 90 % I am sure he has A, but can I fold to raise and river bet?

      Hello daun666,

      Guess I would still bet the turn bigger for value. But otherwise seems to be fine. Wouldn't really 3bet on turn either. He wont really continue with a lot worse anyways.

      On river I might even sometimes consider raising, although Calling is likely the safest play.

      Best regards.
