      Hello NoriDare,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      You shouldn't be Check/Calling the turn cause you don't have the implied odds there, if you Check then it's a Check/Fold it. Though the river should be a standard fold, we don't beat that much there vs bigger sizing as well.

      Best Regards.

      Thank you veriz for your great welcome post and your answer with good explanation of the my weird played hand.
      That is absolutley true that calling too much is beginners calssic mistake and i am a proof of that when i call on turn and river hopping to catch a pair with bad kicker or weak flush. :f_confused:
      I am looking forward to post more difficult hands with tougher decisions in the future not as obvious as this one. ;)
