      Raise turn. You'll get much more value from draws, one-club-type-of-hands, etc., and will get the whole stacks in more easily by the river. Plus, these guys on NL2 will never ever fold an overpair on that board, especially with one club.

      I don't like raising river that much. He could have two pairs? Which two pairs? Is he raising 93 from middle position? Think about ranges, not fixed absolute hands. You still have a big raise to make on the river to get full stacks in, you will get many folds from weaker hands and many calls from higher flushes and an eventual full house w/ 99 there (not sure if 33 or 44 are in his range, but possibly).

      Regardless of results, I think you lost value by raising river and not turn. If I just call turn, I might as well just call river as I don't want to raise and make a ton of worse hands fold and better hands call (mind that there are no worse flushes than yours, unless you think villain is playing 23s from that position).

      Hello boomer011,

      Turn: Rather raise it here and protect your hand than call it, you have to build up the pot.

      As played
      River: As you see the guy made a small bet on turn and now pot size on river, it really indicates to a very strong hand. :) I'd rather Call and be happy if I am even ahead.

      Best regards.
