      Hey Gerv,

      This session was full of very very very incredibly super awesomely worst play ever but this is one of those spots that may be actually evaluated somehow.

      I guess calling is not the best play, but he actually made it quiet not expensive at all. So thats why i decided to call I guess. However, there is not so much hands he can have and most of them crush me. (QQ+, AK, KQ, 55,) Then maybe some Flush draws like AcQc, AcJc or similar.

      Do you think we should try to be creative here with some raising or folding right away on the flop can be coolest play?

      When he bets this small again on the Turn, I just think he is weak. But that does not mean calling makes sense because you just give him a lot of freedom to bet again on the River with any sizing he seems fit

      Therefore I just raise the Turn like to 90cents for free showdown. It is likely he will check to you on the River

      Best regards,
