      Is call flop ok? On turn, I am not sure if I should bet. It wouldnt be for value for sure, so I could only expect him to fold. On river call? What if he would bet turn? I would fold.

      Hi Mla,

      Preflop: the call is fine given the raise sizes and position.

      Postflop: His range should be really wide so I think that calling flop is perfectly fine.

      On the turn, once he checks I would look to check it down and get to showdown. There's limited value in a bet versus draws that go for a ck/call but a lot of draws may go for the ck/raise (and we'd have to fold).

      As played the river is close because he can also take this line with a lot of hands for value but at the same time I feel that he can have enough bluffs that are taking one more stab. If he were to bet closer to half pot I think I'd consider folding as that bet size would be closer to a value bet.
