      Hi Daisuke,

      Why are we raising the flop and then checking to him?

      I think that calling preflop, raising flop and at least betting turn is the way I'd play the hand. Without any info I can't see why we check to him and give him control of the hand.

      The way we played it we need to call that river plus he is polarizing his range with such a bet.
