      He's generally quite passive from what I've seen, and with him donking the flop, I think most opponents would check behind the river there with one pair/middle pair.

      i think i would raise that flop to 1.5 so we can protect our hand. Then i would chec behind turnd and call river to catch a bluff.

      As played his hand looks weak so i would call that river.

      I would r/f flop to 1,5 and bet turn too, river is pretty bad jt,jq beats us so is any 9x so i would just c/f it.

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: 3-way we should raise that flop for value/protection. No reason to keep the pot small and let two guys see a cheap turn when a lot of turns are ugly for us.

      As played folding river is close given the action and how passive we played our hand but a lot of hands beat us now so it's probably fine.
