Good, as long as you don't check/call the river...bet/fold or check/fold

Raise pf, bet the flop. I don't like the OOP c/r here. I think you learn more with this line before the big bets.

I checked "Thumbs Down" at first because I thought it was full ring. We have no reads so I'd probably lay down 88 pf in the SB here.

However, this is a 6-max table. Thumbs up.

Thumbs up. The flop is a definite raise or fold scenario. If you call you make it 10 bets giving good odds for those yet to act. So, since your hand is strong enough to continue you need to raise. Yeah, you were probably sucked out on the river but you played it right. nh.

this is wrong, IMO. I'd rather not bloat the pot with a mid pair OOP

the c/r is for protection to force out OCs and this is the perfect spot for it. I like this hand.
