      Hello Greedyfly,

      Nah, I don't really like your line, especially on the river any T/Flush beats you and of course a lot of 2pair combos. You practically turned your hand into bluff to make better 2pairs to fold. :D

      Best Regards.

      Am I check folding that then? Bearing in mind he flipped over Q8 of all hands.

      I think I seriously need some proper coaching because I appear to be getting everything wrong. :(

      With time you will get better, you can't start poker right away playing like a pro.
