      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. Sometimes you can Call the river also vs unknown I'd prefer to fold.

      Best regards,

      Yeah raise turn

      River is a definite call... (turn bet size was also 1/2 pot.. hence I don't believe river to be a value bet for a backdoor flush)

      Exactly why did you fold?

      im not really sure, i put him on set or something similar, ofcourse now watching the hand i realize that most probably he would raise on flop if he had set.

      I like to raise turn. But I raise it smallish. You don't have a strong hand and your hand shouldn't be played for a big pot. A raise on the turn accomplishes a few things though: you get value from draws, weaker T's, etc; you get information from your opp AND you probably get a check from him on the river. If he doesn't check, you can be pretty sure you're dead.

      I raise to $6 on turn and check behind on river. I fold if he shows more aggression

      I´d likely call river, to keep him honest, because can´t see him having Tx too often.
      He either has there set, two pair or some missed draw or complete bluff.
      Raising turn is one option, just when passive player would lead turn, then I think he is not folding and not sure if I can raise turn for value+ I have to call shove if he decides to get money all-in on the turn.
