      Other line here?

      Easy to c-bet even if I knew BB (Tribun) would call or raise me lightly. However, on such a flop, he would not raise me with worse hands (no good flop for bluffing) and I wanted to build a pot if I hit my gutshot.

      Checking behind the turn, since I also have (besided gutshot) nut flush draw and I do not want to be c/r.

      The river = value bet. Good size? I was wondering what did you think on ther river, Tribun, since it took you a long time to fold (I hoped for c/r :) ).

      Against a normal opponent im barreling turn, against a tricky one its not bad to check behind.
      River is nice.

      It is easy double barrle on the turn, since you have very goosd equity+ fold equity.
      He would c/r with draw or monster on the flop.
      You should bet turn, since you take pot down a lot of times and if you improve then you can bet river for value.

      Meh, no need to double barrel. Our made hand is not strong enough, so it's not for value. We have outs and don't want to get raised. We can just take the check behind. I bet $4 on the river, the rest is: nh!
