      I bet the turn only because I thought that i can fold some Ax and Kx hands. But when he cold I knew I was beat. But was my turn bet for protection against overcards good or bad? Should I call the cbet?. I never put him on 77 or any lower pair because this isn t an usual play so after his check I thought he had high cards.

      Hello Sikac,

      Betting there is totally fine, he might even have any kind of overcards there which didn't want to 2nd barrel there. Nice hand! If you Calling the flop then you also need to protect the hand on turn.

      Best Regards.

      Hey veriz,

      One question: what do you think of his preflop raise I mean this is not very common. Do you think it is worth? I still do just call and go for set value so was kinda wondering would you suggest to add such kind of play in my style. On this limits of course.

      Not so early. Maybe on higher limits like NL10 or so. Now you can play the hand profitable as well with limping.
