      Final Pot: $13.49

      Stats: 30/10/4/40(vpip/pfr/af/wts) with 50 hands

      This hand tilted me, you may try to find out why ;)

      Anyway, did I play well against this player?

      On the flop I did the usual bet to protect against FD.

      On the turn he floated me. That's where my problem kicks in, what might he have here? With 30% VP$IP he might call with many hands pf, so I really can't put him on a hand here, there are so many possible hands, from air to nuts flush... Anyway, I tried to control the pot from here, no reason to raise I guess, if he's bluffing let him take another shot on the river, if he has something it's probably better than my TPTK...

      Hey, if i total fail to put my opponent on a hand, if he makes a strong bet i usually fold TPTK. There is a possibility that he flopped a set or a flush and i don't see many hands you'll beat there, except draws, but they usually don't bet that strong there.
      I hope he didn't have A3 with the ace of diamonds...

      hi
      i think folding turn its ok . he shows he wants action so i dont like my hand too much here having to face another bet on the river . if you have reads on him and you feel ahead to a draw or weaker hand you can call but assuming this you have to call any blank river ( that didnt completed a draw ) and i am not sure if he fires a river bluff there with a busted draw . its very read dependent and marginal so folding is not a bad solution .
