      I think you should have 3bet preflop, as played I think I just call down 3 streets there instead of raising. When you raise you fold out a load of bluffs and isolate yourself against a range which has you beat in the majority of cases.

      Hello abc794,

      Preflop: You could even consider 3betting here and very likely could even consider going broke vs his stack. Unless he is really some kind of nitty player.

      As played
      Postflop: What do you try to achieve with the raise on turn? Rather just Call and take the pot control and be happy if you even are ahead. All worse is going to fold.

      Best regards.
