      my plan for this hand was to keep it small as TP and K kicker isnt a great hand, but wanted him to continue to fire with worse hands. I realise if he is semi bluffing that he might get there with me playing passive but i feel against someone who will 3 barrel with TP ill get more value just calling?

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Preflop: I'd rather like even to isolate it here rather than Call. In mutliway pot our hand ain't that strong.

      As played
      Flop: Of course we are not going to raise here and isolate ourselves against better hands. Rather would have played the same way. And reevaluate it on further streets.
      Turn: Pretty close actually in between Calling and not. Since his line even looks pretty strong and I don't expect him to 2nd barrel with draws here anyways. So it's up to the made hand. But what kind of hands do we beat? Only some weaker Qx combos while some draws like 78/sets/2pairs etc beat us already. Therefore I might even at some point prefer to fold the hand rather than Call it.

      As played
      River: As you Called the turn then there is not much to add, I wouldn't lay it down for the given odds either.

      Best regards.
