      Hi StrayWolf,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: The cbet on the flop is close but we have the best hand here often and if we fire the turn on high cards (non spade) we should still be able to win enough of the time.

      However I'd probably cbet bigger so we don't get floated as much.

      As played bet the turn MUCH bigger for pure value versus the hands that don't fold (bigger pairs and FDs). We are losing value here.

      As played on the river we should simply bet or ck/call if we think he can bluff a missed draw. If we would of bet bigger on the turn we would of had a much easier shove on the river.

      For example I would of bet 0.85 on the turn which would of made the pot 2.63 with 1.9 behind in which case I would of shoved a blank river.

      Okay sounds great thanks.
      Anyways the 4 on the river is not quite a blankish card is it? You'd still shove on the 4? I mean there many 2 pairs and straight that got there.

      What cards containing 4x (for 2p) or straights get there that call both the flop and turn (especially when we would be betting larger)?
