      Any thoughts? Where can I get away from this? Obviously on the river I was almost certain I was dead, could I fold even on the flop here or should I really be calling and c/fing turns that dont improve me?

      Hes flop c/raise looks really strong, and I think I would just fold it preflop.
      Our hand can hardly improve and probably we will be faced with serouls agression on later streets,which we cannot pay.
      I think hes range here sets: 22,77,JJ(hard but not impossible tho-we have blocker and JJ is good enough to raise preflop, plays hard OOP especially with OC) and slowplayed QQ+.
      So folding this on flop in most cases will save us tons of money and problems.

      Hello Pilks7,

      Well, the problem is that even if you Call it on flop then you practically ain't gonna beat a lot on turn. I'd there be rather inclined to fold my hand than continue.

      At some spots it might be even safer to fold it right on flop. But if you expect him to pick such lines with draws/Jx hands even then it's possible to Call once and reevaluate it on turn. Although it's usually the case that they don't overplay their TP type of hands and play them rather passively. :)

      Best regards.
