      This hand could have been worse if villian had raised me Pre-flop.

      As played, the turn call is marginal, probably should fold here as worse hands (ignoring bluffs) will not take this line?

      Given board texture I didn't see many ways to play my hand other than as a bluff catcher, best idea?

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Why do you even go for a Check/Call on flop? I don't like turning my hand into bluff-catcher. I'd rather Bet myself and then reevaluate further actions.

      As played the turn should be rather a fold vs pot size bet against that kind of opponent who has been winning most of the showdowns. That's why I also don't like to turn my hand into bluff-catcher.

      Best regards.
