      Hello faronel,

      Flop: Don't really like the Call here cause you can never be sure either you are ahead, either you are able to have any overcards as outs and neither you can't Call with GS cause you don't get the implied odds. Therefore either raise it gain the initiative or just fold the hand. You just putting yourself into trouble which happened.

      As played
      Turn: He is rarely going to fold any better hands therefore doesn't make sense to Bet in first place.

      As played
      River: As long few draws even got there it's not even a hero-call here cause even an Ax from his side is turned into bluff. You just beat a bluff here and vs pot size I'd even fold. While if you Check the turn you could still Call it down.

      Best Regards.
