      river is absolutely stupid bet... but I couldn't resist to bet because he showed weakness on turn by calling after thinking very long and I don't think he could do it as a fake. Do you think flop call and turn bet if draws complete and no one bets is profitable? Those players were totally folders, check fold about 77%, won at showdown about 55%

      Hi Ezeras,

      Preflop: I don't mind the call but since there aren't any fish in the pot or behind us I prefer a 3-bet squeeze here to attack the almost 10 BB in the pot.

      Calling the flop with garbage versus two players is a great way to lose money. Even if we had Jc9c it would be bad. Imagine the Ax hands these guys have in their range between the two of them (plus some of the draws with nice equity).

      As played check river back. Nothing better folds, nothing worse calls.
