      Hero wins with a full-house, tens full of queens (Ad Qc)

      I played this hand a little bit conservatively, since he had 3% PFR in 89 hands.

      Flop: I call his weak CBet, wanting to keep getting value on turn from Qx, Tx
      Turn: I raise/fold his again small barrel, wanting to know where I stand
      River: I guess I just called trying to control the potsize, since I wasn't sure on my Full anymore, because of his tight PFR

      1. Should I have raised the flop?
      2. Should I raise bigger on the turn? I raised this small to be on the safe side: keep getting value from Qx, lose less money if he 4bets
      3.Is there any point in raising river? Is there a weaker hand that would call our raise?

      Thanks in Advance!
      This is all for tonight :f_biggrin:

      Hello M1rCea,

      1. Should I have raised the flop?

      Nah, not really. Just isolating yourself against better hands and making worse to fold.

      2. Should I raise bigger on the turn? I raised this small to be on the safe side: keep getting value from Qx, lose less money if he 4bets

      If you want to raise the then definitely bigger. Doesn't make sense it to min-raise. :D But overall do you think he is capable of calling with worse?

      3.Is there any point in raising river? Is there a weaker hand that would call our raise?

      I'd definitely rather raise it on river than on turn. :D Since on river any kind of PP may Call you but on turn you might just isolate yourself against better hands like maybe even Tx,55.

      Best regards.
