      Hi everyone!

      I was thinking in this hand if i should have played bet/fold in the river. I thought of it to prevent him to represent the flush in case he didn't have it, but in the end i decided to play bet/call if the amount of the bet was not that big. When he went all in i decided to fold. Was it the right move? Or was the line bet/fold better? Should i have called the insane bet in the river?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi Sipox,

      Preflop: We should isolate larger given that we are OOP. I'd make it at least 10c if not 12c.

      Postflop: As played we should cbet the flop larger for pure value and protection. I'd make it 14c or so.

      River I feel should be a bet/fold as villain still has worse pairs that can call a bet. Once we check folding is the best play.

      As a side note, please hit the "advise judge to take another look" button when you leave a reply.

      No worries :)

      That's why I mention it because it's really hard to see unless you know what to look for.
