      I deliberately post to you the fact he showed his hand. All I have known about him: it was his third hand and he was out of blind in his first hand, and he had not full stack.
      So what do you think is it important in such situations to pay respect to our relative position vs unknown fish? Because in such positions we will probably get easy money back.

      Or is it just a standart fold without reads?

      Hi PokerFerrer,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Flop cbet is thin given how connected the board is however we do have one over and a gutshot.

      As played I like your turn barrel for thin value and protection and we normally look at checking back the river versus unknown, potentially fishy guy.

      As played I think we ought to fold the river with the weak bluff catcher as he may even block bet Qx.
