      for starts, your preflop raise is too small, i'd like to raise slightly bigger, something like 4 times the raise before you.

      post flop, i think you are best to keep check calling on the turn, as although you hold the overpair and a flushdraw, if you fail to hit your draw, you are left with a medium strength hand that you can not really make a play with.

      also stop posting the results and the cards after the spot you are questioning, its just really really annoying and it sort of makes it an awkward one to evaluate because you know whats coming :D

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Guess we could consider Checking the turn but I doubt that he is going to bluff much anyways so your play ain't really huge mistake to ship it. Doubt that he is going to Call you much looser on the river anyways.

      Best Regards.
