Hey BUTTCHIN0707

I feel that you played the hand nicely although I would of preferred to see you bet the turn as there is an overwhelming amount of draws that the villain could have so we definitely don't want to give him a free card.

With that being said I think checking to him is good if he's the sort of player to try and take it away from us.

Your check raise size on the turn is perfect. It charges him a decent amount for any draws that he could potentially be on and it also sets us up for a good amount of chips to shove on the river.

I think you played this hand nicely but I would prefer to see a bet on the turn more often than a check, but either line is fine given the table dynamics and reads on opponents etc.

Nice hand, Chris.
