      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , Q:spade:
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds.

      I think, I might re-raise with suited AQ, but now I just call.

      Flop: ($0.70) A:diamond: , 7:club: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.5, Hero calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.70) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $1.21, Hero raises to $4.00, BU folds.

      The pot is nice, I want no more bets, I just want get the pot right now, so I raise.

      Final Pot: $6.91

      Hello gg12gg,

      Why do you Check/Raise the turn? I don't get it. You just isolating against very strong hands there, totally overplayed your hand. :f_cry:

      Best Regards.

      So, the right way would be check/call turn and check/fold river, right?
      Being oop sucks X(

      Nope, not really. :) If you Check/Call the turn and then comes a blank river what's the point of calling the turn then? :P Rather fold it on the turn, if you usually Call the turn then means also on a blank we call the river cause you beat all the same hands on turn.
