      I think the continuation bet was dangerous on the flop. Yes, you are keeping aggression, but there are a ton of hands that already beat you or are likely ahead with draws. Any overcard on the Turn could hit the aggressor and either give them a pair or make a straight. I would have given up the hand after the flop. Though obviously if it goes c/c and you hit a 6 you would have other options...

      Hello psydreamer,

      Rather Check/Fold the flop than CB it. Even if you hit your outs you will rarely know how good you are with them and of course you wont have much fold equity on such a board. Nor of course I don't really like the call-down on the river, not that many hands you have beat.

      Best Regards.
