      I´m still not an NL expert, but I think the hand was played well. You destroyed your opponents Odds for his possibly Flushdraw. And her hand was that strong to just make a small bet. ;)

      Hi klonoa!

      I think you played this hand too aggressively. I would just bet half the pot (~7) on the turn because on the one hand I want to know how good my hand is but on the other hand I want to protect my hand against straight and flushdraws.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I also think it's not that well played. limping in from middle position and calling your raise, usually is mid-pockets. with 567 on the flop and getting check/raised, you can easily get broke here. I'd bet around 7$ on the turn and hope for a fold. or check and check/call river, depends a bit.

      PF looks a little strong but if MP2 is pretty tight/straightforward then its probably OK.

      Being c/raised on that flop would cower me into folding unless I knew that villain was pretty aggressive.

      I'd check behind the turn though (despite all the possible bad river cards to come) and hopefully pick off a river-bluff from a busted draw. As played though,I feel that your turn bet is only being called by a better hand.

      On the turn villian only has about a pot size bet left so i figured shoving got more FE than say betting $7. Anyway i didn't wanna give a free card on such a scary board, I was going to fold if he leads out on turn.
