      When there's an unraised pot I tend to bet pot on the flop.

      As played you have a b/f on the turn, so nh.

      Hello Shefass,

      During Freeplays, as soon as you bet, your main objective is to Pot Build as soon as possible since the pot is Unraised thus low.

      so I recommend betting potsized on the Flop to give your opponent 2:1 to call instead of 2.5:1 plus you get more value

      On the Turn 5, it can complete a straight of Flushdraw. Therefore I play Bet/Fold meaning that when I face resistance in means of a call or raise, I (check/)fold accordingly

      I would bet pot on the Flop and $1.5 on the Turn leaving yourself with $2.25 to spare if one Reraises you. $1 bet on the Turn is in my opinion to low to create FE and represent the Flush.

      If UTG2 decides to call, check/fold the River

      Make a note of his betting line
      Good luck

      Gerv
