      You played it good, you kept firing with the best hand the guy just chased 4 outs 2 times when you bet the pot, he should have folded on the flop he is just a fish that was throwing his money away and got lucky!

      Hi there dleach1991,

      This thread was created in the Discussion Forums, but it should rightfully belong in the hand evaluation forums. (you will see it as a subforum above). I will move it there now. Just want to flag that so you will create it in the proper section next time and so that our awesome hand judges can see it and comment on it :)

      Also it helps if you take a look at our hand evaluation rules. ive highlighted one below, but you can read the link for more info :)

      Write an informative headline or title.
      Your headline should include the limit, variation and situation at hand. Here is an example:
      AK Top Pair Top Kicker + Nut flush draw - Turn play

      These rules help our hand evaluation forum run more smoothly. Thanks so much for your cooperation. If you have any questions, dont hesitate to let me know ;)

      smiles,
      wendy

      Hello dleach1991,

      The problem is that there ain't that many worse hands which Call you on river. He is even such a player who rather tries to win on showdowns. W$SD = 57. So therefore I'd really rather be inclined to just Check/Fold the river.

      Also you don't have to make exactly pot size on both streets, you are just revealing your hand and also can't balance your bluffs this way.

      Best regards.

      I'd bet the flop ~$0,16 and as played the turn ~$0,45-0,50.
