      Hello mishkagg,

      on the flop I would lead out with full pot size(1$). I don't know why you stopped betting on the turn, you are losing value and protection this way, because if 4th :heart: shows up on the river then your 2-pair will be worthless, so bet 2/3 of the pot on the turn and push river.

      As played, you have to call river raise, you showed weakness on the turn, so villain can raise you with many worse hands then yours.

      ...and remove results, please, until you do I will just pretend I didn't see them. :f_p:
