      Opponent was unknown. Do you think it would be better to check the turn? I was not sure what to do and i just bet, following an advice of coach Biearber :tongue:
      Although, i don't like the pot getting so big with these cards on board.
      On the river, i just made a stupid blocking bet. Even if he missed a draw, any raise would probably get me out... :f_confused:

      Hi Erevos,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why would we check the turn? We can still bet for value/protection and the advice that BiearBer gave you is on par with what any other coach would say. But it's up to you to challenge the advice and understand WHY you need to do that versus just doing it.
