      I didnt bet the turn because I think that card could very easily hit his range. So with this thought and the factor that if I continue my aggression and get caught. I m on the river pot committed.

      Hello Sikac,

      Well, I understand you are raising the flop but why ain't ya protecting the turn? :) 3x isn't that likely. You have to protect your hand there!

      But as played I wouldn't be surprised if he even had a weaker Ax hand there. Should have bet just the turn and wouldn't have any trouble with the Call-down or anything similar.

      Best Regards.

      So you advice me to bet the turn 75% which will be 0,45~0,5 so he has just about 0,3 left if he callls or shove into a pot more then 1,5. Which means I m pot commited right. .

      Well, I would even advice to just raise the flop bigger to make ready to shove the turn vs his stack. :)
