      Hey guys,
      What do you think about the hand? Did I took a too passive line? Was there a a thin value bet possible on the river? I think now I had too protect my hand much more. But let me ask you also if I had raised his cbet and he pushed is it still a call? UTG1=15/7/cbet 80%/127 hands.

      Hello Sikac,

      Nah, your passive play is fine here. Don't be result oriented. Of course we could consider raising but now again what would you do if you get 3bet? :) You most likely wont be able to play for the stacks since there ain't gonna be a lot worse hands in his range.

      Best Regards.
