    • 89os must be wesje1983's favorite hand.

    • Your raise here is waaay to small. That being said I am betting turn weather I think I am getting value or trying to get an overpair to fold.

    • the raise was to get him to slow down and hopefully get check check for some reason i though he hit a set after he called or had over and didnt think hed fold but yeah should of made 25K bet on turn but with this line do you fold river?

    • So by your logic you are excersizing pot control with a raise on the flop? If your gonna pot control just calling in position with a flop like this gives you more options on the turn, not to mention a much smaller call on the river here. Raising this flop is the classic worse hands will only fold better hands will call or raise. As played you need to fire that turn after that raise cause now you are getting some overpairs to fold. The river is probably a call at this point due to how much weakness you showed on the turn.
