      Pretty horrible play by me, especially the call on the river (one of those "I know I'm beaten but I've got to see it" leaks - must stamp these out!). I think I gave too much weight to his high AF 5, and was dreaming of doing some heroic bluff-catching.

      I would be interested to know how you would deal with an aggressive opponent in this situation. Which street would you have folded on? Or maybe raise/fold to his donkbet on the flop in order to find out quicker where I stand?
