      Hello LinasMilius,

      Instead of calling the flop just fold it, cause you never know if you have implied odds, could easily have reversed odds and not to talk about other people behind you who could just 3bet there.

      Best Regards.

      pre: I'm not big fan of folding, investing 1bb and folding for 2bb's, i know the reasoning for fold, in this situation pre was very strange in that case i see people having strong holdings, i'm not aiming for Txx, this was something close to set mining.

      What's more important for me is to hear what you think about my game after the flop:

      Flop / good call?
      Turn / good 3b?
      River / good push?

      ups i'm sorry for that :s_o: , still there's one part i cant get out of my head, my river bet. There's an argument that on paired board, it's likely some one having FH, but at the same time i feel like my straight is to strong just for ck. I was thinking a lot if i had 8A in that situation, i most likely have played the same, and straight is way stronger. What you think about situations, then the hand your holding on river is to week to bet, but to strong to ck?

      As I described you made already mistake earlier. If you go that far you have to answer yourself that part, I don't really know how the guys playing. But usually I don't see himself being far-far ahead here. :)
