      Hello,

      Against unknown flatting preflop is fine.

      What's the reason of the check/raise on the flop? I don't really like it since we are likely to isolate ourselves only against better hands.

      As played, I would check/fold the turn.
      Can't really see any worse hands calling us here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      You are telling a good story here, mate. Raise flop+cbet on that turn scarecard is fine, now that we turned our hand into somewhat bluff. He can't continue with e.g AK or AA without spade here.
