      This is some super ugly hand,and i`m questioning my play again on the river

      Flop,turn i think is standard,maybe a bigger bet on the flop so there would be no overbet shoving on the river...

      as that playing here vs a non-agro fish i decided to check/fold because if i bet there any amount i had to call the shove.

      Reasons to fold: on a draw heavy board like that don't think he is ever just calling with a set in order to shove the river on a completed draw... with two pair the same story.

      River card was very bad for me,completed both straight and flush draws so i decided to fold

      Do you agree with the check/fold river?I`m still not that sure about it :(

      P.s. I hope that running really bad for the last 4,5k hands doesn't have a negative effect on my decision making.

      Hello cozacu,

      Preflop: Being OOP + 1 limper I'd raise it bigger.
      Postflop: Could easily go for bigger Bet as well on the flop cause if he has any kind of hand he is willing to pay you anyways. But otherwise on the river not much to do. :(

      Best Regards.
