      Hi,

      preflop: fold to avoid marginal spots; sometimes you can call but keep in mind to play your hand carefully

      flop: c/c
      turn: c/c
      river: c/f, maybe c/c if villain is capable of bluffing scarecard

      Best regards,
      Anin

      Sounds good to me. Being deep with BU makes it a closer choice so i don't hate the call.

      Postflop the board is rather dry and bloating the pot out of position deepstacked is probably the worst way to go. c/c c/c c/f sounds a lot better.


      Hope it helps.
