      Bad call on the river? Because I thought it maybe is busted flush draw bluff. And I think it's pretty stupid mistake from me. Set is one of most slowplayed hand I guess.

      No... river call was fine.. but you played it badly preflop and postflop. Preflop, 4bet and look to get it in.

      I couldn't bet after SB went All-in. I just could call. I had to call 4c I guess.

      Ahh didn't see that. I think on the flop, you can bet a bit more... I would bet just under 2/3 pot since the board pairs and you might get calls from A high and other PPs. Same with turn, more than half pot but under 2/3 pot. I think on river, you should check/call.

      You were betting less than half pot, and you really don't want an A coming out with cheap calls.

      Hi,


      I'd also bet closer the 2/3 pot on flop and turn, pretty standard.

      On the river it's hard unless you're convinced this guy would call a shove with worse hands, as mostly people will just dump everything but Qx after you fired 3 bets into them. If you knew the guy was decent you could almost c/f it given how few busted draws he could really have, but since it's nl2 and he's unknown shoving the river would be fine if you had bet more on earlier streets.


      Hope it helps.
