Buster you on the money , the turn bet should have been allin as I was comitting too much of my stack putting myself in a ****ed up spot on the river.
The bet initself was enough to deny a flush draw the expressed odds, but two smaller pair calling here imo. On the turn I put villan on Ax (but not AQ)
or two smaller pair. I dont know about checking on the turn and not charging the flush draw, because you still leave yourself in a difficult situation
on the river and gain no info . villan checking the turn and then only calling doesnt really make sense with a set as he probably would be protecting
his hand with the huge pot, right? When villan shoved the rest of his chips on the river , i went into the tank for sometime and said I think I just got
rivered , so if I went with my fealing I could have gotten away from this hand and still had chips , I guess what threw me off was the attractive pot odds
and because i havent seen villan at the casino before so he wasnt a local and the fact he reached for his beer created an image of villan as loose
drunk. So I take all you advise that pre flop fold a better choice here. Although Dont the 6-1 pot odds ever get tempting for anyone the button ?
Thanks for the input. I called the river bet, villan shows As 10s and takes down the pot with two higher pair.

I might have wanted to check the turn hoping he would thin value bet the river or bluff into me and just call not that i like giving free cards but sometimes its better to play it safe. If you checked the turn they probably wouldn't overbet for value. Fold pre flop would have been better.
