      Hi all

      For this hand, I'm quite surprised that my opponent folded on the river, after putting so much money in the pot.

      Are my bet amounts ok? I'm thinking maybe I should have bet slightly less on the flop, as board had some drawing potential.

      Thanks a lot.

      Bet more on the turn, you have to protect! You should bet over 2$. And then you can shove the river since you'll be commited.

      If this guy is just calling on that flop he's on a draw 80% of the time.

      +1, you have to bet more on turn, there is no way you can bet such amount.

      Best regards,
