      MP2 checks, Hero ???

      [PreFlop]I decided to flat call here with ATs, because there are another two TAGs behinds me and wait for their action. Should a 3bet have been better here?

      [Flop] The MP2 Cbet, but with 2nd pair of Tens and nut flush draw, I wanted to put more money in the pot as much as possible, so a Raise should be more reasonable here. Addtionally, I assumed my opponent's range could include JJ+, KQs, AQ, AK or 88 flopped with a set.

      [Turn] A trip for me, but could be a fullhouse for my opponent. It's better off checking behind than putting any bet here.

      [River] My hand could be beaten by many hands of his range, should I have checked behind to minimize losses or just to put a small bet to make him call with worse hand like KQ, AQ?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Why ain't ya betting the turn? :D Easy value-bet there, no way I am Checking behind, you leaving a lot money on the table by doing this. Otherwise Check behind the river while now Jx has you beat.

      Best Regards.

      Hi veriz, long time no see :)

      Thank you for your evaluation of my hand. I've been away from table for quite long time, so it's quite hard to start again with enough confidence. Maybe I was playing with cautious recently instead of playing as a TAG :f_cry: I think I should go back to School to re-educate myself :D

      Anyway thanks and best regards,
