You didn't take the lead preflop by raising, but you did on the flop with a probe bet, which got one person out.

I don't know that you need to bet at the turn, or even the river. If he bets the turn, the pot is already 175 and you've got 8 outs for either straight which are both good, but the K and T might give him a straight so I don't know if I'd count them as outs. I would use 8 outs to figure out whether to call him if he bets the turn.

It's ok to take the lead post flop, but your bets weren't the right amount, imo. Also I might wait a coupke hands to start bluffing at a pot, try to establish that I'm willing to lay a hand down.

I think I was also looking at the flush draw as well...he might have the ace but I might of been adding a little to my odds because of this. Like I said, I don't remember this hand at all. I might of been distracted and not thinking at all :D
