      it would be nice to have some information about the opponent.

      your move play on the flop looks good, but I suggest continuing the aggression on the turn with a 1/2 - 2/3 bet and fold if raised. If he calls try to reach a cheap showdown on the river (of course a scare river card might influence your decision).

      And about the opponent, if he plays tight he probably has TT+ or a set already which makes your decision be excellent. But if he plays looser (how he should play a SH cash game) his range includes a lot of hands you already have beaten like AQ, AK, AJ, KQ, 78s, 56s, 77, etc. That's why I advise you to not give up so quick with this hand

      Hello Tatarken,

      Are you turning your hand into bluff or what's the reason for Check/Raising and then Check/Folding the turn? :P Doesn't really suit together at all.

      Best Regards.

      Of course it was bad if you didn't even do it for value and planned just to Check/Fold the turn. Instead just Check/Call once and reevaluate the turn.
