      Hi ! My question here is about the river play. I am thinking that I could've reduced the loss by checking behind, but I wanted to extract value from all the Qx and maybe even TT 99 hands from the fish. After all, on flop full of draws, who doesn't protect his trips against FD SD and even full house draws? Tx !

      Hi rahica

      You would lose value from Qx hands that he can still have there so I would bet fold 1/2 on the river.
