      -----

      SB was an ok player leaning towards LAG more than a TAG.

      Preflop: defending vs a SB steal.

      Flop: very nice flop but a pot bet makes me worried. Call.

      Turn: 3/4 pot again, I don't think that my TP is good anymore but I got equity to improve.

      River: 1/2 pot seems like a definite value bet here and my hand is not good against his value range. I don't think he would bluff such a wet board 3 times in a row.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop defend is fine.

      I would just flat on the flop vs pot sized raise. Vs a smaller bet I might consider raising.

      I think you can fold the turn here. It's true that have equity to improve, but you don't really have good implied odds. This is because all of your draws are dominated except for the T. I.e if villain has an ace-high flush you are drawing dead to one out anyway - so you will just lose even more money on river if you hit.

      In terms of direct odds you don't quite have enough either. You need 29% equity and with 12 outs you have about 24%.

      Thanks for the correction regarding the turn action!
