      Why did you bet on turn ?
      WHy didn't you make pot control and on river re-evaluate your hand?

      The flop call is okay, very dry and he could have over cards or gut shot and is trying to bluff you off your hand, imo. But why bet the turn and why call his raise?

      You should definitely already think about folding on the flop here - there are really not a lot of draws possible.

      Depending on opponent, you can call flop and check/call most turns, but you definitely can't bet/call turn. If anything, it's a bet/fold.

      Hello staktas,

      Flop: Bet/Fold the flop right away than call it. We ain't doing very good vs his Check/Raising range.

      As played
      Turn: Easy Bet/Fold even vs the min-raise. There will be 0 cards what help us on the river whilst he could be already holding the nuts.

      As played
      River: Not much to do.

      Best Regards.
