      Hello dember,

      Turn: Bet the turn yourself so you at least could protect your hand from some draws. :)

      As played
      River: Why ain't ya betting instead yourself? Why do you Check/Call there? And in a freeplay pot what do you hope to beat whilst FD also got there.

      Best Regards.
