      RIVER ($1.26) J:club: T:heart: 2:club: 7:diamond: 9:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows A:spade: A:heart: (Pre 82%, Flop 50.2%, Turn 68.2%)SB shows T:club: 5:club: (Pre 18%, Flop 49.8%, Turn 31.8%)Hero wins $1.20

      On the flop I make it pot size for value vs any flush draws / straight draws....Jx will also probably call here

      The turn card is a bit ugly for me...he leads again but on small side...I was telling myself to pot it but decided to raise it smaller since there is a possible straight on the board and he really is very passive and usually folds to a cbet, so I guess he has something here

      River connects the board even more...he checks and I check behind...lots of straight draws got here and Im not sure Ill get called by worse....mistake not getting possible value here or ok to check behind given the circumstances?

      Hey HrabriLavek,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop is definitely a good spot to raise.

      On the turn the 7 completes only one possible draw. There are still tons of worse draws + pairs, a larger raise would be fine.

      On the river I think you made the correct decision to check back. Villain is unlikely to be calling with worse on a 4-to-straight board.
