I think you should have betted on all the streets, in my opinion you were just lucky someone went all in

Sorry, i missed the Flush possibility, you should have betted on the turn and river then... but that's just my way to play it

Hey stedds

I think betting flop is best as this is an extremely wet sloppy flop that we re easily outdrawn on, but with that being said it is quite likely that if we check flop one of our opponents will bet for us which sets us up for shoving all in. Still prefer betting out though.

Check calling on the turn is good and checking the river is interesting. We can over shove here for 1900 into a pot of 1200 and get called most of the time by at least one opponent but I think I like your line of checking the river because if the guy to the left of us bets there is still a player behind him to act which could put some more money into the pot, so yeah... check shoving river is neat when it is very likely they will be value betting there straights and flushes.

Nice hand, Chris.
