      Hello w4terman,

      Don't like your float on the flop at all! I'd just fold there and give up my hand, we rarely even will have much fold equity. Neither we don't know the opponent, most likely you were even bluffing against the loose opponent according the stack which is even worse.

      Best Regards.

      well i had overcards plus some backdoors isnt this enough for a float ?

      you dont sugest float at micro's or the board was not good for a float ?

      Nope, not really. Especially not on such a board and you didn't say any word about the opponent, standard fold for me.

      Raise would work on dry flop where you have some backdoors but not on such a draw-heavy board. :( Just wait for better spot, there will be a lot of them.
