Where did this go wrong? As a background the winner was folding to a number of my raises. Should I have folded the turn?

Bet sizing is wrong . 50% of pot is enough . All troubles come from it. You have good hand on the turn but it doesn't cost all of your stack. He's got a hand on the turn and you are behind to many of them. I wouldn't play it so agressive .

Hi skrish76,

I agree with Shichi on the bet sizing. It's too large. Betting smaller will allow weaker hands to stick around longer. When you bet so large especially on the turn you are really pricing out anyone without a flush which means you only get called when you're beat.

As it is I think you would have to fold to the check raise. You are almost priced in though. You have 9 outs to make a full house and I would go with it if there were any other possible hands you are beating but there really isn't.

The problem with calling and trying to make the fullhouse is it cripples your remaining stack. So while it's only 2000 to call the check raise it's effectively the rest of your stack since losing those 2000 chips weakens your remaining 1800 chips so much.

Tough spot. I think raising smaller would help the decision making process though.
