      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      Can you explain to me why do you decided to play this way on the flop?
      Is this raise for value or as a bluff? What do you think about his calling range here?

      Best,
      Plamen

      I just wanted to protect my hand. I think his range can have spade and I wanted to not allow him to see turn cheap. Also I guess I am ahead on the flop against him so why not to raise for value?

      So what worse hands are you targeting here at all?

      I mean, if he bets a FD here it would most often be Ksx/Asx and he'd have two overcards as well which makes you flipping, we are way behind against sets and overpairs and overall can hardly beat anything from his range when he plays like this.
      In addition, we do have a player behind us left to act, so to me this is quite an easy fold here. We don't need to get into such spots.
