      vs complete unknown on zoom, wasn't used to playing so deep, didn't want to 3bet the flop. turn I thought he could have a worse set or a draw and called for pot control mainly because we were so deep, and the chance I might lose my entire stack

      I thought about c/r turn, but opted not to, missing value? River seemed ok, some worse hands could call, and not many better in his range. If a spade had come, I guess I would fold?

      Flop: I agree with not 3betting vs this stack depth. Definitely 3betting the straight, and maybe top set. But I'm not doing it with mid or bot set.

      Turn: You should either c/r the Turn, or just c/c T c/c R. aim of flatting flop here is to dodge bad cards and then just get it in good vs combo draws.

      On the river we are facing a range of some JT combos, 68s, 99, maybe 97s (1 combo), and 55. Check/raise is not good because you isolate yourself vs stronger hands. At least if you did it on the turn you can gain some value from JT/spade draws.
