      Should I have bet on the turn? Or called on the river? Or was I right to give up when my contibet was called?

      Hey lollujo,

      nice hand.

      You have position, so checking back turn for free card with many outs is well played.

      On the river you have only A-high, so without any particular reads on the opponent folding is best.

      Regards,

      Perhaps I'm finally starting to get the hang of SSS after all! A week ago I'd have pushed all in on the turn. I was just a bit worried that I wasn't being aggressive enough, but I suppose it's important to learn when to fold too.
