      SB bets $1.70, Hero calls $1.70




      I decide to x turn because I want to make him to bluff river but...
      This board is so bad for play like mine because:
      - board is too drawy, straight and flush are available so we have to protect our hand
      - to many hands on the river could hurt our hand

      I found out it the hard way on the river when I decided to call.
      So I made a mistake, not best play, easy bet on the turn

      Hi!

      board is too drawy, straight and flush are available so we have to protect our hand
      - to many hands on the river could hurt our hand

      I think thats why t b/f is better than call river.

      Hello BGawli,

      Definitely have to Bet the turn, no way we are Checking behind there on such a drawy board. :( Bet it for protection & free showdown. Otherwise not much to add but definitely Qx is in his range.

      Best Regards.
