      Hey!

      We should be betting more on the turn. There are many draws still out there and we need to protect against all of those! Also, we want to extract max value from Ax before the board gets to ugly. (like it did on the river) We should bet ~$1.10 on turn.

      On the river, we should check behind. There are many hands that beat us, and most hands we beat will just fold to a bet. So we should just take the free showdown.

      Cheers!
