      The opponent is 26/0, 5.5 Af after 60 hands.

      Comments on how I played it? Are we just tryna get to showdown? Or should I have bet the river as well?

      Thanks
      Matt

      I see you have lots of these hands where you miss c-betting the flop and then bet turn. If you didn't c-bet flop then you can't make him fold anything on turn as you already showed weakness. Bet only turns you hit in this case.

      You could c-bet this flop and if he calls he can have flush draws str8 draws, 6x, A5... all sorts of crap and then you can bet turn bigger if a blank comes they'll fold a lot there.

      I don't have "lots of these hands", actually it's just about 9 in... 15k hands. It's just that I was reviewing a specific spot: initiative, check flop, bet turn, check river, as I suspected I might be leaking money there. That's why you see these today.

      Thanks for your input anyway

      Lots as in lots on hand evaluation. I have no idea how you play :D

      Just discussing some hands, I didn't mean to offend.

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      CB the flop or either Check behind the turn if played this way. What are you trying to represent on the turn?

      Best Regards.
