      I think that folding two pair on the river was the right thing to do. Was it? What about the bet sizing? Is half pot with two pair too weak?

      I don't like the call 3bs oop with A3o. It is def a -ev move imo. As played you can't call here the board hits his 3b range so he's likely got 2pair, sets or the straight

      Hello JimmyChooEsq,

      Preflop: :f_cry: Calling a 3bet, calling it being OOP, calling it with dominated hand. Calling without even knowing the opponent. And I guess I could just stop cause I don't see any reason so far why we should be calling, you are losing huge amount of money with your play here and which is of course a HUGE leak.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you donk out? You don't even give him the chance to bluff, what worse Calls you?

      Best Regards.
