      Calling the turn is a mistake in my opinion. I like the raise on the flop and the continued aggression on the turn when you pick up a flushdraw, but calling his minraise on the turn just doesn't work very often. We have 12 outs so will only hit on the river <25% of the time. So 75% of the time we're c/f, and 25% we're c/r. But we're OOP which means he can check back the river when hearts hit, which account for 9 of our outs. We lose out on a lot of implied odds by being OOP in this situation, if we're IP a call might be acceptable.

      However OOP I prefer to either shove the turn here or just fold, our equity isn't that great.

      Hello cozacu,

      Flop: Why do you Check/Raise so small? It's pretty obvious that you rather have a weak hand with such a raise size.

      As played
      Turn: Why do you CB so small? :P Of course there could be several reasons behind it that he is a station and mid-stack and I wouldn't mind. But I would still do it ~$0,80. And I do like the idea of Calling the min-raise. You are getting really good odds. Why should we shove? We ain't making any made hands to fold nor our equity isn't going to be good vs them.

      Best Regards.
