      I think I played this hand well, and did everything I was supposed to. Not sure if there is a better line, but if there is, I would really like to know, thanks

      Hi Shyko,

      The better line would be to just bet smaller on the Turn like half pot instead to force him out of the pot. Alternatively you can check/raise the Turn if he bets a lot but since the danger is big he can check back, you rather want to bet.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
