      Flop & turn are fine, but I would bet 2/3 pot for value, when I get raised - all-in.

      And you can bet a little more on turn, pot-size at least, since you weren't pf aggressor and the board is getting draw heavy.

      Hi kenthmp,

      flop is well played. On the turn raise full potsize, because it's freeplay and you want to build up the pot fast, since there's only 1 street left and you also need to protect against FD. On the river I would push after betting potsize on the turn, but as played I prefer 2/3 of the potsize, since that is less then half of your stack and I don't see a reason to overbet river.

      Btw, you are right to not see river card as scarecard. ;)

      Regards!
