      Nice hand, well played. You could bet a bit bigger the turn and fold to a raise.

      This is maybe a weakness i have here, but it feels so wrong to bet the turn here(i cant see any hand he would call me with that doesnt have me beat, it would be 9Ts but it didnt feel right) and therefor i bet small to minimize my loss i he raises. I have big troubles going against my gut felling in these spots, i actually thought of c/f or c/c in this case.

      Comments please.

      If you don't like to bet on such boards then just use Check/Fold. I don't like to Check/Call in such situations.
