      I dont think that u got much fold equity here. If u want to bluff u should push all in to maximize it imo.

      I didn't want to bluff really, just wanted to see whether I was against a draw or a Q. If he was on a draw and I checked behind he could've easily bluffed on river with busted draw.

      I think it is better to check turn and use your hand either as a bluff/bluff-catcher on the river or to simply fold river.

      Hi degnic!

      Horrible turn card. I like your play on the turn. If he is on a draw he has to fold here because the board is paired. After his reraise you have an easy fold. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Why?

      But we(I) don't know that he will.

      Villain might think, "Looks like Denic has at least a Q, I can easily call $9 getting more than 3:1. My implied odds are excellent here."

      Because degnic can also have 66 or 77 which means villain is drawing dead because even another :club: wouldn't help his draw. That's why he cannot call degnic's turn bet if he has the draw.

      Good luck at the tables!
