      Hi Ezeras,

      Is there any particular reason why you played your hand so passive?

      Are you looking to ck/raise the flop or turn or why are we checking down?

      Given the turn is an "obvious" scare card plus it puts a few more draws there we should definitely bet for pure value. Even the flop is a clear bet with the limited info that we have.

      What worse cards they could call us on turn? We are OPP ( I wouldn't bluff in this situation)

      Everyone checked the flop so it's plausible that we can bluff or semibluff (diamonds). So I can see pairs, like his TT calling us.

      By checking I let them to try bluffing me out... Do you think by the betting turn we could win more from these hands like TT? Would we bet the river if we don't have a flush and would he call us?

      Yes, I would bet the turn and river with or without flush.

      I think that we lose value from pairs and draws that are playing passive. I feel that they would bet the flop often if they wanted to bluff as both checked AFTER the PFR checked (which was you in this case).
