      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      villain unkown, looks like loose fish
      I think I had to check until unimproved and didn't have to push.
      it's not a scare card nor a card that improves my hand, so the 2nd barrel was wrong decision
      What if villain decided to bet the turn?
      I should call small bet according to pot odds and fold to a push?

      On the turn i would check/call maybe below 1.25/1.50 due to pot odd's but any more it's an easy fold.

      Hey oedipa,

      actually I would prefer to push all-in directly on this flop, because this way you max your FE and if you make a standard c-bet of 2/3 you commit yourself with so many outs. On the other hand you can c-bet less like you did, but I don't really like it, because the board is quite drawy and I always prefer to c-bet bigger on drawy boards.

      As played, the turn depends on the type of the fish, if it is a standard loose calling station then I prefer to check turn and hope to hit one of the outs on the river and get the money in then, if villain is more LAG/maniac type of player then pushing turn for remaining FE is the better choice.

      Regards,
