        how can I improve my Postflop Skills with these Hand?
        Whats are my Options?
        1. Push because I have nearly PS left -> but thats to easy ;)
        2. bet. Bet like me or you prefer bet 1/2 PS all the way? I think, when i will call, he will also call a higher bet then 1/2 PS
        3. check behind for bluffinduce on the River or for callinduce River. He could call a Q or a weak K on the River. Cause of my BDFD I needend to protectso much against 4 or 5 Outers, because I steal them some Outs.

      Hi allizdor ;-),

      first of all we would need much more stats to choose different lines, I really think he can also have a strong hand according to his stats and trap you. Anyway you should maybe bet the flop 20$ to let him make a bigger mistake to call with a draw and an easier call on the turn. He will give up many turns unimproved with a draw, but when the pot would be 70$ and you only had 38$ behind he gets better outs. So you get better flop protection and looser calls from draws on the turn. its only 2$ and the equity doesn't change this much but 40$ in 66$ looks way stronger then 38 in 70 which is nearly half pot.

      I don't like checking behind the turn, a King will pay you off anyway a draw will only pay you off when he hits, so its better to bet the turn to get value from draws. You will sometimes bring a Q to fold with your turn push, but I think more often a draw will call.

      Best Regards
