      I think you should raise the flop here for protection because just a hunch is not enough to play this hand different imo.

      W4aterman I have seen your nick at the Nl4 at party were I myselft play. It would be nice if you would like to talk about hands and strategy with me at skype or something because we are at the same level and site :)

      Hello w4terman,

      Have to raise the flop for protection. Way too drawy board to slowplay our hand.

      But as played I'd still ship it on river while he may easily have a lot of worse holdings which may easily pay you like any overpair or something similar.

      Best regards.
