      nicely played... i don't think you can get much more out of a reasonable player^^ ... i like the check on the flop mostly because you definitely see the turn (curiosity whether i hit the straight or even royal flush prevents me from betting here, and also disguises the hand)

      very nice hand example!

      Hello,

      Preflop: I don't like your Call preflop, you are OOP and also the hand isn't that good. I would prefer to fold.
      Flop: I am betting here to extract more value from opponents and maybe protecting from Ace high flushdraw.

      As played
      Turn: Make a normal bet, ~$2,50.
      River: OK.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      he can't fold a hand that later makes a royal flush ;-)

      i think disguising my hand outweighs extracting value... of course you can argue that you inducing a bluff or call due to the "weak" flop play may not be enough compared to extractig value from anything that hit the flop... but slowplaying also has the effect that someone could catch two pair or trips on the turn and be tempted to call bigger bets... i would think i have a huge lead on the flop and this is the perfect moment for slowplaying

      I´d lead out that board, because when someone has there AK or AA or two pair/set or lower flush, then they would likely call or raise and you can get your money all-in on the flop.
      I´d bet turn 2$.
