      flop+turn are good. Don't want to isolate against better hands because a decent amount of the time they have an Ax hand. Therefore the cautious play is good.

      River I would fold. River raises are usually quite strong and quite rarely blufs. Don't think you would beat anything here with second pair.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Do agree about the flop or the given odds but I don't see myself being ahead on the river where FD completed and Ax hands possible. Just fold it.

      Best Regards.
