      Hello, could evaluate my played hand in wich I caught straight on the flop? In your opinion, is there were a more valuable way of playing? I was thinking about raise on the flop, wouldn't that be better? Thank you in advance.

      raise flop like 3~4x, see if someone has some kind of hand

      even as (slow)played, definitely don't check behind the turn, bet at least 3/4 pot or something, with 3 players on the pot very possible that someone has spade fd
      just see how little value you got by the river, when you are not even guaranteed to have the best hand anymore... if he puts you all-in there you even have to fold

      Hello Rounder777,

      Flop: There is no point to slowplay here. We need to protect our hand. Raise it up!

      As played
      Turn: How you gonna build up the pot if you are not even betting here. :( We definitely have to bet it here.

      As played
      River: Kinda close either to raise it or not. Although definitely considerable. But if you get 3bet here then you most likely don't beat anything. That's the problem. But going for small value should be still fine. But obviously missed a lot value on previous streets.

      Best regards.
