      FLOP [K :diamond: , A :spade: , 4 :club:]

      TURN [9 :spade:]
      schelleXL bets $1.42 and is all-in, irulkaaa raises $2.93 and is all-in, donkeyshow__ folds.

      RIVER [ Q :club:]

      schelleXL shows [A :heart: , K :spade:]
      irulkaaa shows [4 :spade: , 4 :diamond:]
      irulkaaa wins $3.96 from the main pot.

      Are my betsizes okay ? I think I could probably bet abit larger on flop but the board didn't seem dangerous (rainbow flop and only QJ could be dangerous for straights).

      So I wanted some value from both players

      I go all-in on Turn because of Flushdraw on board.

      Could I have foreseen the cooler ?

      I would raise a little bit bigger preflop, you are out of position so you want to give worse odds for them to call. Around 0.20-0.22 seems fine.

      Flop I'm bettin slightly bigger. True there are not a lot of draws out there but you still want to charge the pairs as much as possible, no pairs that are calling a 0.26 bet are folding to a 0.34 bet.

      As played I think you played turn fine, and there's no way to avoid the cooler.
