      I decided to flat call with AQ pre coz he is folding way to much to 3B
      Flat call again on flop despite 2 s cards to induce spew from him. I would prob give up if s comes. I know that Raise/push flop would be standart option but by doing so I also think that he doesnt put me on very strong hand or FD and I can get some more money on T,R.

      Then he C/R Turn what should I do there? Again I think he doesn't put me on strong hand so I thought that he bluffing. I should have pushed imo on turn to protect Clubs draw.

      On river He pushes and I made a stupid call.

      Any comments?

      raise flop for value, he is getting all-in all sort of draws and you need to have also made hands to raise that flop. if you´re only raising with draws or two pair+ then it is very easy to play against you, since mostly you have there draws
      I think I can´t get away my hand on the turn, so I´d shove unless some scare cards come on the river and I´m pot committed to the pot anyway if I´m going to call turn, so I don´t mind your river call
