Hi all

I’m looking over some on my hands from last month and this one come up.

I’m wondering whether I should have folded on the flop here.

The V stats are 22/14 with AF 6 over 51 hands

Since I'm out of position, especially if the opps are passive, I'm raising preflop to get value and to have the lead in the hand.

Yeah, as above, I'd definitely be raising pre. Make them pay to see a flop. If I wasn't in the blinds but was UTG or UTG+1, I'd be folding A 10 off suit. In fact, sometimes I'll even let this hand go until around the hijack or CO.

I would fold this in early positions but as played should I have called the flop?

River is a snap fold.

We have decent equity on the flop with a gutshot backdoor flush and overcards. We are ahead of most of this guys range(we need to raise preflop to narrow his range) im never folding, x/c x/r dependant on villain stats.
Calling the turn to such a small amount is pretty close with the paired board but I probably would.
Only 1 move on the river unless hes a maniac.

Agree with others about preflop.
I'd be calling flop and turn. Its very hard to see worse hands than yours betting turn smallish and shoving the river.
