      Preflop i called because he seemed like a fish.The flop is ideal i raise because i want to take over the lead,and he could call with weaker hands.The turn card is not the best but i think his range is larger than only AK or stronger hands then mine.Was okay the broke?

      Hello juhiimi,

      Guess I'd even Check/raise bigger on flop ~$1 although it ain't a huge mistake. But about the turn I don't see that I can fold it that easily here while he may even have worse Qx hands and maybe even worse 2pairs and of course overpairs. Plus he ain't even fully stacked.

      Best regards.
