      Did you have any special reason for not c-betting the flop? Sure it's not the best flop for 66, but I would still c-bet because I don't want to give up with 66 here, and I also don't want to call bets on the turn and the river.

      As played, even if I'm not getting there.. well, I guess I would call since we've shown so much weakness earlier. However you can avoid this spot by c-betting on the flop. :)

      If you give up on the flop there is little point to a river call here, especially a near pot bet. Back door flush made it, any 4 made it, any Q or J has you beat. Only hands you beat are air bluffs, 22, 3x and 55.

      Good flop for a cbet. Anything with 2 picture cards is a great cbet flop, even if you raised with 56s.
