      How should I play it better?

      You fold on the river to his bet? Seriously, what do you expect to beat with his bet on the river, and with 2 overs postflop?

      If you're playing MSS as I think you're, I don't see why you made a call on the river..

      Actually, you asked how you could have played it better, and I replied that I think you should have folded on the river bet..

      But wait for Gerv, after all I'm just another fellow pokerstrategist. :s_thumbsup:

      Hey Ramadas,

      We have midpair on the Flop, which means we cBet like you did

      Now what that also means is we should fold to any follow up bets from our opponents because it is super likely he has our beat. Another overcard on the River makes our hand terribly bad , we only beat bluffs at this moment

      Seeing he bets pretty big on the River, we have an easy fold in my opinion. He just does not bluff often enough in average to make money here with your rivercall

      Best regards,
      Gerv
