      What is my best play on the flop and turn?

      I don't quite understand his line of limp/calling PF and then check/raising flop. Slowplaying a monster made hand?

      Was the turn call alright to try catch the OESD?

      River was a very bad card. FH with any pair.

      Hi,


      Since you'll see some players limp/call even AA there for deception i'd say his range for raising the flop is quite wide, 9x/8x/hearts/overpairs/sets. We don't really know which of our "outs" are clean, if he has hearts we only have a 6 outs straight draw, if he has 8x we have a gutshot and two undercards basically, if he has some sort of combo draw we're almost dead. If i had clear outs with something Ahxh i'd call all the way for sure, but 5d4d is really a weak hand in that spot. I'd probably give it up right on the flop, and for sure fold the turn in spite of the good price we get.

      You just don't want to be guessing in those spots against erratic opponents at nl10, just play spots where you know where you're going and make sure you don't bleed money blindly everywhere else.


      Hope it helps.
