      Hallo!

      At the turn he has also the straight, like you. Why did you not bring it in at the turn?

      I think I would call the River too, but there are many better times to call this massiv overbet in my opinion.

      Hello jeszkar,

      Well, I don't get your donk on the river at first place? Most likely if I would even Call the turn then I'd just Check the river and reevaluate his actions.

      But as played easy-snap-fold for me, what you hoping to see there? 8x and that's a split and you just paying rake.

      Best Regards.
