      Pre:Standard
      Flop: Continuation bet on low board, fold out his broadways. Or is it doable to just check flop?
      Turn: Not sure why I checked here. Should just bet it?
      River: Easy fold? Or should I check call as it's pretty thin value and we can call smallish bet.

      - standard c-bet with overcards+gutshot

      Turn: Not sure why I checked here. Should just bet it?
      - if you bet you´re saying you have ace, so I guess c/c him down is fine

      - I prefer betting out. Likely I´d call since pot is small, although doesn´t expect to be ahead too often (some players might also slowplay Ax and then raise river)

      Hello swanny36,

      Rather bet the turn for value and also protection from any kind of draws and maybe even sets than Check/Call it and face such a play on river.

      Even if you played it his way I just don't see many hands what we beat, myself I'd Bet/Fold the river without knowing the opponent that he may turn his hand into bluff this way.

      Best regards.
