      You played fine. After 4th spade I'd go for ch/f.

      Hi Factorius,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Raising the flop for pure value is perfectly fine and your raise is good as well.

      I would not bet that turn because a large part of villains range will have a spade and there isn't much value at all in a bet.

      So we should look to take a free card and hope we pick up a boat (20% of the time).

      Well played.
