      I think we can fold the turn.

      Villain line is very strong. He either has the A or he hopes that you have it.

      River is a definite fold.

      I think your Preflop and Flop Lines where perfect.

      We dont have any stats on the villian but if hes chasing an ace high (which you are hoping for) he has essentially 3 outs. Your going to get paid out ~85% of the time and you want the villian to play like this.

      As for the turn card, thats just bad luck. I might have checked behind just to see what his line would be on the river since you have position. If he pushes all in on the river get out, but if he makes a "Value Bet" or something affordable then call.

      Thats what i thought too, he did show his cards afterwards and he had Q5o which is why I needed to check that my fold was good X(


      guess i need to start using stats ;)

      I think once you bet/call turn, you should also call river- although you´re not beating anything than bluff
      Against some opponent checking turn and calling river is also fine line
