      preflop and flop seems ok but I really dont see a reason calling the turn and thats more or less it.

      The turn call is fine as well. You don't wanna get bluffed out so cheaply on whats probably the best bluffing card in the deck. On the river you pretty much have to give him credit.

      I'd probably just preferred raising his silly turn bet rather then just calling. At least you will get some info about where you stand.

      82/7 won´t really bluff that turn card and mostly valuebet for vor value starting with two pair and ending flush
      I think turn is fold, since you can´t call river and really no need to think 82/7 would bluff you on that spot that you should make thin calldowns especially when you´re going to fold river every single time if you miss your trips or A

      I dont like raising villains turn bet since then we turn our own hand into a bluff. It all depends on the villain as to whether he bluffs on the turn, but yeah, guess 82/8 should be pretty passive and these think donks are often exactly what they appear to be - gay value bets.

      My reasoning behind the turn call was simply that he could play like that with a T in hand, because I Cbet too much (working on that, because it is a problem in my play) so he floats me each time he hits the flop (at least this is what I saw from a previous hand where he floated with the flop's 2nd pair). This call is based mostly on a read (through a few hands though, but I think it's better to play through an "uncertain" read rather than with no read at all, maybe I should have explained it in the main post.

      TY for your answers.
