      I would just fold here... as there are 4 :diamond: on the board, and u are on the turn... he will probably bet higher on river if u call him, and he will beat you too often.

      Hi ya sviridenich,

      Although it was such a small bet to call, i feel that given the texture of the board and his betting pattern that a fold was probably the correct choice.

      Well played.

      Regards,

      -Steve

      yeah, I also agree that you have to fold. against two opponents, the chances are that one of them has a diamond, and right now ANY diamond beats you. I mean, since you hand can't really improve (made already), if you call the turn, you'd have to call the river (probably to some huge bet), and end up losing lots of money (maybe even stack if you call a shove). So, better to fold.

      your hand is just a bluff catcher, and we are playing to win with our better hands not to catch random bluffs. fold and go on.
