      Hello daisuke3823,

      Preflop: What's the reason for calling in first place? How you going to overplay the opponent, by just calling and hoping for a hit you wont play the hand profitable nor if you don't have a great postflop plan.

      As played
      Postflop: You have to ask yourself how many worse hands even pay you on the river? Do you think he is ever going to pay you with just some pair type of hand here, his line already looked super weak by just Check/Calling it 2x or maybe sometimes even trap. Therefore I'd rather Check it behind while I don't really see that many worse hands paying you on the river.

      Best Regards.
