      you hit a very strong hand (only better kingand pocket queens beats you but both of them are very unlikely). pot is unraised and board is a heavy one. i think you should bet pot or even over bet in order to protect your hand ageinst possible draws. if raised i'd go all-in.

      turn brings a card that complets only possible OESD. even if we are behind at this spot ageinst streight we still have 10 outs to improve. i think we are ahead too often not to go broke at this spot.

      i'd play the same way.

      I would bet pot on flop and push the turn, but I also like the way you played it.

      Hi gambleris,

      nice hand well played, I don't like to overprotect on the flop since you are ahead in 95% of the times and want value so 1$ is fine.

      Best Regards
