      -----

      Preflop: set mining with Call15.

      Flop: folding.
      Turn: the board becomes draw heavy and since everyone checked to me I decided to bet for thin value from AK and FD.
      River: check.

      I'm not sure if I can actually get value with my turn bet, but is protection alone worth a bet? AK has 8 outs and any diamond has 8 aswell.

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      On the flop checking back is fine.

      As they check the turn as well, I like betting here. We can get called by PPs and one card FDs and we'd love to pick up the pot here.

      As played, checking back the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
