      Anon table.

      SB was a fish on small sample.

      On the flop I have a combodraw, but if he is raising me with some other draw, it could dominate me, plus he probably wont fold made hands anyway, so I decided to just call and play in position.
      On the turn I try to steal with my equity.
      On the river I only beat 32 :P , so I decided to make a cheap move against his busted draws, which he could definitely have after this line (raise flop, ch/call turn). Size is smaller cause I only want to make him fold his air hands (maybe even Ace highs), and I dont think he would fold made hands (Qx/Tx) even to a normal sized bet.
      What do you think?

      I would bet bigger on turn like I would with value hands and shove the river to make him fold Tx too, maybe some of his weak Qx that randomly raise the flop.

      When you bet so small it might still be +EV but you are not consistent with your story and fish love calling whenever they instictively realise you don't play a value hand with this sizing. You might just get called by 8x with hearts here which is what I don't like. You have to estimate how many hands fold in his range basically and see if your bet is profitable. It's tough to say because his range is not very defined.
