      I dont think i can vbet the turn, or can i?

      I had zero clue of his river range, so had no idea how much should i raise here. I dont think he has QQ-KK here, so im against 88-TT and flushes, his range seemed weak, so i just minraised...

      Turn is hard to bet, now Jx beats you and FD's are ahead ofc.

      On river I'd raise like 3x, he will call many pp's and fold trash no matter how much you raise

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: That's a really bad turn card and now we can only get value from pairs under Jx and rare backdoor flushes so checking back is fine.

      That river is great for us but do you think a potentially fishy player can fold a fullhouse or even the flush? I think we can justify a much larger raise.
