      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      What's the reason for checking back the flop?
      We'd love to take down the pot right here plus even if we get called we still have gutshot plus backdoor FD and also we are IP.

      As played, your turn bet is good.

      On the river I'd bet around $1.1-$1.2.

      Best,
      Plamen

      i checked back the flop to not be scared away with a check raise if he had some kind of Ace. I don't think i can call if he raises my bet on the flop.

      LE: Actually, i think if he would reraise me, probably i will co all in. Is this good?

      Well, the good thing about betting is that we can represent a good hand here (since we raised preflop) plus we can make better hands to fold (like 77 for example) and also we would love to take the pot down against his T9s or so.
      And finally, if we get called we still have some equity.

      So checking back because we don't want to be check/raised is kind of bad here, since we will just fold if he reraises here and stacking off will be very bad.

      I would consider checking back if I had A2 for example.

      Pre = fine
      Flop = Bet around $.50 - For reasons already mentioned, dont give them free cards :D

      Turn = as played fine
      River = maybe bet 0.90/$1 but its obv solid value bet.
