      I'm not happy with how i played this hand....I call pf as i see i'm ahead of his range and when i hit the top pair i intended to check/call 3 streets. With his small contibet on the flop i felt obligated to raise. How should i have played this hand. I'm totally lost

      I think you should've fired another bet on the turn to protect your top pair against that flush draw, though checking is also fine to avoid traps.

      Hi Rihard4a,

      Once we check raise flop I think we do it because we expect villain to be weak here because of his betting size.

      We should be consistent with our thought process and bet turn (like 30cents).

      On this particular river I'd check-fold.
