      Hi,


      I don't think it's bad overall, as long as the board is drawy raising the flop when somebody minbets is often better than starting a call down with TPNK against unknowns.

      When MP3 calls the flop he has any pair, straightdraws, flushdraws, and some gutshots hands. Betting the turn for value is certainly fine too, even tho 65 got there it's about the only reasonable hand that improved to beat you, tho some better top pairs were already ahead on the flop.

      On the river it's doubtful worse pairs than Ax will call again and flushdraws beat you too, i don't think can valuebet that. It's likely a check/fold to a normal sized bet. As played villains makes it really cheap, i doubt he's bluffing often since basically
      everything got there, but bad players merge their ranges on the river sometimes so it's possible he's betting for no good reason with a worse made hand. It's close, i don't mind looking him up for that price.


      Hope it helps.
