      Hey, this is a hand I really think I made a huge mistake...
      Been going true it a few times, and it seems I have a problem with playing correctly, when it's huge variance play, but from a mathematic perspective I'm not getting away from this one.
      If this guy even has 76 or A6, I still have 26% equity, and I only need like 20% to call from turn...
      However I gave up because I was so sure that the fish had his ace, and I was beat :P
      Hopefully I'll get away from my feartilt ;) still working on it, however I needed to have awinning session, and it was, so I guess it's all good, but still this was a mistake right?

      43/0 - 7 hands

      Bet flop bigger, even pot-size or overpot. Your hand needs a lot of protection there, and if opponent really is a fish, he still calls you off a lot. Turn you could check/call or bet 1/2 and call minraise to hit your river, you got a lot better odds then.

      And yes, he has something there on turn, definitely.

      Hello Resilence,

      Bet the flop bigger, you want to protect. Though as played there are a lot of Ax floats in his range and therefore we don't want to get raised and against which we have to fold. Therefore rather Check it and Check/Call with implied odds for quads/FH.

      Best Regards.
