      Hello GraveGoods,

      Don't slowplay it on flop. The board is super-draw heavy. Raise it up and do it for protection.

      But as played kinda cruel that his bet sizing turns around on turn while he used to bet weak on flop. Might indicate to strength but I doubt that I am getting it away. Most likely vs his stack I'd just get it in on turn. To protect our hand.

      Best regards.
