      Flop is fine I think to check behind since you have position, but on turn you could try to fire a bet to win the hand right there and if not for information. And if he calls you will have position again on the last street. You could have won a little more and have gotten more information if you hadn't played the two later streets that passive.

      NEVER FIRE FOR INFORMATION

      flop is quite a standard call, we have outs+the best a lot of the time

      on the turn i dont really see a lot of point to fire, just because no PP isnt folding, unless to clear out our equity against hands like QJ,JT,QT, etc, but checking behind is fine and checking behind river is fine too.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Well, against his stack it's kinda cruel. If he had a bigger stack then we might even raise not for information! but for rather make any kind of weaker PP to fold. But in this case he is never folding any pair/PP. For that reason it's really close either to Call on flop or not but obviously for the given odds shouldn't be even wrong and reevaluate it on turn, although there most likely we had to fold.

      Best Regards.
