      really overplayed the hand. what should i have done instead? i misjudged preflop and thought he was UTG which is why i called. i thought he was just Cbetting so i decided to raise but that is just turning my hand into a bluff. then when he called it screams a strong hand. so should i have X/F the river instead of calling?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Flop: What's the purpose of the raise in first place here?

      As played
      Turn: If you raise the flop then why do you Check behind turn? Didn't you raise the flop for value? :)

      As played
      River: Well, raising the flop and turning your hand into bluff/bluff-catcher doesn't make much of sense either. :P

      Best Regards.
