I got 23o on big blind with 3 limpers before me, flopped a straight and bet each street, being called on flop and turn and then being re-raised on river. Should I have bet more or was I right betting for value?

Hi Jimbo,

I think your line here is fine. River is tough vs. an unknown but bet/fold is reasonable here considering that all flopped draws (67 and spades) got there. This big a river raise is probably not aces up since the flush draw came home, if he had A8 many players would just call tending to be overly concerned about the flush card themselves. So yeah, I like betting for value and folding to a big river raise here.
