      Stats in

      I don't know why I played this so bad, probably because of tilt and fear. How would you play the turn? Check-raise/fold ? I had absolutely no idea how to play this and I played it like the worst fish. Well, my hand ain't that great, relative to my opponent it's like the best 'straight' and the worst flush, but in this spot I lost a ton of value because he had a :club: K.

      I'll quit poker for a while, I'm just too bad, making mistakes almost every hand.

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Flop: Most likely I wouldn't be even Check/Calling here in first place while being OOP and just having 3 high FD. You might have reversed implied odds.

      As played
      Turn: Yes, most likely if you go for the Check/Call on the flop and for the draw then rather Check/Raise for value vs Kx or whatsoever hands and protect from 1card FDs/FH and etc.

      You can't always play poker perfectly, there will be mistakes which we can't fix, mainly putting opponent on wrong ranges and stuff. We just must secure our A-game and that we can follow it. :) Even the best poker player makes mistakes. ;)

      Best Regards.
