      Preflop: Iso raise is fine

      Flop: Why do we raise so small? The board is wet and if he likes his hand he can call much more. I'd make it at least $0.4+.

      I like our turn pot bet however I don't really understand the river check behind. We are still ahead of many hands like 1p/2p and the only draws that completed were backdoor and TQ or T6 and that was on the turn.

      Can you not see villain calling with worse on the river? Enough worse hands?

      the river completed a few straight and flush draws so I decided to just check behind rather than bet/fold.

      What range does he get to the river with? Can he have worse hands that would call?

      Plug into pokerequilab (if you have a few minutes) and see how his range is distributed.
