      In the river the K comes and i get double but there´s a FW so i fold, besides that, what do you think about the check in the turn?

      And yes kymupa, this time i open to three blinds ;)

      Preflop I don't mind raising in order to try to steal the blinds. What do you think about raising smaller here though - like 2 or 2.5bb? What do you think could be the pros and cons of doing that?

      Postflop looks good to me.

      We have top pair and we bet the flop which is standard. We could get called by worse plus we'll be glad to take down the pot right here.

      Turn is a rather bad card since if we bet here I doubt that a worse hand would call.

      As played, folding river is fine. I don't think he'll end up betting a worse hand here like this.
