      I guess it's the "monster under the bed".
      I am so confused by the weird bet sizes and calls that I'm afraid to bet on the river.
      I could not figure what they could call with when I raised on the J798 board.
      could one of them hit the backdoor flush?
      did someone have QT ?
      so I decided to see showdown & not value own myself.

      and yes, my raise on the turn was to small.
      what would the right size have been?

      Hello William340,

      You should have raised the turn a lot bigger rather than make it so small which gives them good odds for draw even with FD. :( But as FD gets there, FH is possible I'd also Check it being in 3way pot.

      Best Regards.
