      Hero checks, BB bets $1.32, Hero folds

      Flop and turn: betting for value. mainly against flushdraws and overcards. River f__cks up everything, so giving up. He snapcalled both flop, and turn, so I put him on a draw.

      Hello,

      So against a fairly unknown opponent I prefer folding preflop.

      Cbetting flop is fine.

      On the turn, betting again is good and I would make it around $0.55.

      River sucks.
      Check/folding is best here, since I don't think he is calling worse hands, also if we check he is not betting worse hands.

      Best,

      Preflop I attempted to steal the blinds only. If he calls and I flop nothing, I give up obviously vs this rock.
      Snapcalling makes set, or overpair, or draw probable. I'm not sure, I dont know timing tells too much. But he called INSTANTLY the pot sized bets. What is his range after calling turn in your opinion?

      Hi.

      I dont like your huge flop bet. Your hand is not that strong so bet smaller.

      Turn is close. Ill cc w a weaker 8x and bet w a stronger 8x.

      Cf river is sfandard
