      I'm not sure if I played this hand correctly, yes I got the money in as a 4-1 favourite, but would calling his turn raise and check calling / folding the river be a better option? albeit cautious.
      Both players were weak passive, and played very marginal hands on a regular basis. (Apologies for the lack of stats)

      Thanks for your reply, against better opposition, would calling turn check calling / folding the river be a viable option? With the pot being the size it is on the turn.

      hi
      nh . you played it fine geting it in with the best hand
      when he minraises is very likely he wants to stack off and you donw wanna see another q t or j on the river that can complete a boat
