      Hello IhasLuck,

      Flop: What's the reason for CBetting in first place so small? Should rather do a normal one, your sizing may just induce bluffs/semi-bluffs. Not a great idea to Call either while you don't have any backdoors and are OOP, you are just giving him the chance to hit and at the same time giving chance to Check behind. I would decide what to do right on the flop, either to 3bet cause we are so deep or just Bet/Fold it directly. Not really a huge fan of calling such a huge Bet either. What's the plan on the turn? Check/Fold any Bet? :)

      As played
      River: Of course I'd Call it down for the given odds to take a look but I would assume that we ain't going to be far-ahead here. Rather seems like induce-bet like a FH.

      Best Regards.
