      DrRaab - Please when you post a hand, add some notes/stats and your thinking process or at least your question about certain play.
      It might be very rewarding for you to fix your game.


      About the hand.

      I think betting the flop is fine, you have a good hand here. might fold to strong Raise from MP2, otherwise call if you have good odds.

      I guess you can call the turn.

      River You have the best hand, you want to maximize value. In order to make your turn call profitable - YOU HAVE TO BET you need to make about 1/3 bet AT LEAST.

      Hello DrRaab,

      Flop: Bet the flop yourself rather than Check it, everyone shows weakness so take a stab.

      As played
      Turn: We can't be even sure if we get the implied odds for Check/Call, rather Bet yourself and pick up the sizing.

      As played
      River: Although Bet the river yourself cause they are rarely going to Bet in those spots while most likely having a weak hand.

      Best Regards.
