      On the flop i bet fold against so many opps on this flop.

      turn its good but he still can slow play some Fds from the flop . So i am not sure if we have to bet/fold or bet/call cause got one pot size bet left + 1 $ .

      river i am a bit lost cause the awkward stacks behind but i ch/fold cause i dont think i beat anything

      Hey Noulispa,

      So the real issue in this hand is not whether you should bet for value but how you should break up your stack so you are not left with an awkward amount on river.

      My preferred solution is simply to overbet the turn allin. This is a good chance you get called by any flush-draws, + 2pair and sets are snap calling if they didn't raise the flop. If villain does end up having a flush you have equity at least.

      As played it's unlikely villain is bluffing river, he's shouldn't really expect you to fold that often. He nearly always has a flush.
