      Hi,


      Flop is standard for me, it's just too difficult to start check/calling bottom pair no kicker sandwiched between two unknowns with no idea what to expect, you're better off turning it into a semi-bluff and representing Ax hoping to take it down right there.

      Turn is fine too, you made two pairs, there is a lot of value to be had from flushdraws / maybe 75 and top pair hands, betting big for value is the way to go.

      On the river both the flushdraws and 75 get there somehow, you'll own yourself against those hands if you bet and there is no guarantee that top pair hands will call another bet given how ugly the board has gotten, checking behind is perfectly fine.


      When you look at it overall, you got a lot of money in when you were ahead and you didn't lose any more money when he sucked out on you, that's pretty much what you want to be doing all the time. NH.


      Hope it helps.
