      Thoughts on this one? It's never good to lose to a 4 outer on the river but have I slow played myself into trouble here?

      Think you bet sizings are way too small on flop and turn. Flop id bet ~0.1, turn id bet ~0.16. And on river i would bet ~1/2 Pot and fold to a raise. Flush draws missed and i dont think hes raising TPTK.

      Hello AndyWB,

      What's wrong with your bet sizing on flop & turn? You definitely have a huge leak in your bet sizes which will make you loose a lot money in long run. Either by not getting value or not protecting enough.

      As played well, kinda wanted such a spot on the river and gave very good odds. But we can't really fold vs min-raise while he might even sometimes do that with 2pairs. But why do you bet the flop & turn so small and river pot size when even a draw completes? :D

      Best Regards.
