      I think you should've bet higher on the flop and turn. It's a very drawy board. And on the river it's better to ch/c or ch/f depend on the bet size since a draw card is out. Plus the guy looks like a fish chasing draw, he could easily push all-in just to bluff you if you bet which gonna make you on a tight spot.

      Hello UTGDog,

      Preflop: Raise it 4xBB on those stakes.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd bet a bit bigger on the turn while we have to protect our hand and as played obviously we are going to Bet/Fold it and most likely I wouldn't even bet the big ~$0,40 should do the work.

      Best Regards.

      ok so 4BB preflop, and bet .40 on the turn? If he flats, since he is clearly that type of fishy player to call a preflop UTG raiser with T2o, and the same card peels off, do i just check/call or check/fold? Problem is there is no way I can really put him on any straight draw here could I? Simply wouldn't make sense to be holding a 2 here.

      I know that it's hard to play x/f with TPTK on the river but you have to learn it. So you can b/f but for me it would be burning money.
      Easy decision on the river seriously... x/f or as you played b/f. Your bet isn't bad play because your opp could have worse Ax than your but in this situation when he ships it's easy fold.
      In any limit you will see worse hands than this so you have to get used to it.
      Take a deep breath, calm down, relax and continue your game. Everyone makes mistakes. Don't worry with this. Only mistakes cause progress in your game.

      I think what veriz means are your river bet size, so it's easy to fold when you got raised.
