      I dont like the flop bet... even if we suspect we are losing to a bigger A or are seeing monsters under the bed (suspect set) we still need to suck it up and protect against flush flops.

      Really had to be about 60c+ to make flushers pay the toll. For 40c I am calling the flop and probably donking into you if a spade turns regardless of what I hold. When an otherwise good player bets less than half a pot on a drawing board like that its like an invitation for another good player to attack them and represent whatever the first player is obviously scared of.

      Flop: .6 atleast

      Turn: Could bet a little more, you improved to an oesd

      River: I like check behind, don't think there's much value to gain from worse hands on the river.
