      As I said I think I've played it like a donky but I'm still not sure how I should have played it, so...

      Flop: Good enough to cbet. When he minraises I'm a bit lost. I know he's a fish, but I don't know how he plays postflop (postflop stats are based on this hand only), so min3bet could mean bluff, draw, TP or set. What to do in this spot?

      Turn: I'm excluding bluff and draw now, but TP is still possibal, maybe even TP+draw, and set of course. Although I have 9 clean outs, and maybe even few more for TP I think this is a good spot for pressing Fold button?

      River: I could be ahead of AJ/KJ, but still, I don't think call is +EV.

      OK, now it's your turn :f_biggrin:

      Hello Oly0909,

      Flop: CBetting the flop with nutFD+overcards is definitely fine. He might as well just give it up right on flop but as we he decides to Check/Min-Raise then we can likely Call and take the odds.
      Turn: Although I guess I'd just lay it down on turn, we can't be never sure that he is going to pay us on river when we do our FD and as well he ain't betting that smallish into us, seems like he has a hand, therefore we can discount pair type of hands for ourself.

      As played
      River: It's a fold, I don't really expect to beat here a lot, we rather went for the implied odds on turn and went for flush not for TP.

      Best regards.
