      2 points;

      a) On the turn it is not profitable in the long run to make a bet? (he could have been on for flushdraw too)

      b) Is there a way i may have been able to collect more profit on the river? If he called $0.20 (>2/3 pot size) maybe he would have called more?

      Your riverbet is just fine I think.

      And no bets on the turn, you have a trash hand right here, you only have 4 outs for the straight, betting here would be everything but profitable ;)

      Hi DaPhunk,

      You played that hand well. See, on the turn you have only 4 outs, as DeKuip already said, and this isn't enough to make a profitable bet. Still, on the river you have a straight which is nearly nuts and have to be played aggressively.

      A nearly pot size bet is ok. There's not really more value to be taken from this hand as river T of hearts completes many draws.

      Good luck and post some more!
