      MP+1 wins $2.22

      So in this hand I had a feeling that I was ahead at the turn, when the river came I felt behind I called anyways I thought I'd learn from it. How should I have played the hand? I was considering going all in to protect myself from a draw. Was like bad luck or did I play bad? How should I have played this hand thanks.

      Hi prime333,

      I would take his small bet sizing as a sign of weakness because 99% of the players would bet big if they hand straight/set here to protect their hand on this drawy board.

      Given that I'd think about raising flop in your shoes.

      As played we should deff raise turn (like 1$) and hope he goes all in. I don't think we are beat here like ever.

      Best regards.
