      Flop: :s_smile: I bet because it's an orgasmic flop. I'm not sure my bet is for what reasons. Is it even right to say I bet for
      a) value against weaker made hands
      b) protection against GS w Qx or Ax
      c) my equity even if I'm behind. ?

      Turn: Was very tempted to X behind if I was losing to Kx and do not hit. However, decided that he could still have enough hands that are behind me that will call my Turn bet. Namely Qx, Ax that's drawing to GS, weaker FD and also Pair+GS hands.

      River: Ffffffffffff nothing hit, don't think there's anymore value in betting so X it down.

      Really glad I didn't get all sissy and X the turn.

      Betting turn for thin value/protection is fine. He can still call TQ, T9, J9, 89 and other weaker fds. On the river it would be a bit thin to bet again because we can't get value from draws anymore and some hands like 8x, Tx may actually fold.
