      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Is this a good spot to check behind on the flop?
      If not... should I have fired a 2nd barrel on the turn?
      And was this a good call down on the river regardless of the result? I took about 30seconds there to go over the hand again and I could only really put him on AJ AQ AK there.

      I don't really understand how he can call my reraise preflop with just A4 . Obviously I still overestimate people on 5NL.

      Hello Mstlc,

      on this limit people tend to play all two cards :D play abc poker, never bluff and always value bet ur strong hands!

      Flop - ok
      Turn - ok
      River - i would fold here because he would make such play with 4/2 or any PP.

      Best regards,
      Silent

      Hello,

      Perfect flop to CBet.

      If not... should I have fired a 2nd barrel on the turn?
      It's fine to check behind on turn.

      And was this a good call down on the river regardless of the result?
      No, just fold on river.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
