      curious if I played this ok, or if I was too passive.
      fwiw - the villain said he was ahead the whole way, so I am thinking TT or JJ
      so, I don't think I would have had much FE on the flop or turn

      Player6 wins $7.88 (net +$3.93)

      Player1 collects $0.00 (net -$0.12)
      William340 lost $1.76

      I decided to call on the turn instead of shoving, because I didn't think he'd fold, and I figured I could save some of my stack if I missed.

      should I have checked the flop?
      raised him at any point?
      I felt like I could not fold w/ such good draws, but should I have raised?
      I mean "in theory" because "in practice", I would have gotten stacked.

      also, I would have to assume that 2, J, 3 were not outs, so I had 12 outs I think.

      Hello William340,

      Shoving wouldn't really make sense cause your equity is going to be really horrible there and no fold equity.

      But about the turn Call I am not that sure either cause if you assume the guy being capable of paying you if you hit the river then sure we could even consider calling. But then we also have to ship the river ourselves if we do hit.

      Best Regards.
