      Hey. I'm not sure what is the best play here. I decided to call it down hoping I hit one of my outs. Maybe raising it up would be better, since MP's play doesn't show any strength?

      As played I decided to bet small on river, because I don't see much hands that could pay me off. Then I fold river on instant c/R. Thx

      Since we can be way behind against KJ/AJ/KT/AT or 2pair+, I am just folding the Flop. We are only having 4 clean outs (if not blocked) to the nuts, any other card can give us trouble

      Furthermore we are not closing the action which is also a big factor to consider.

      Basically you get sucked into the pot with volatile equity in which you can better invest in something else.

      As played the River is for me more of a checkback than a valuebet, do you expect any of them having a worse pair & at the same time calling your bet?
