      called the river just because i had him marked as a big fish and he could still be betting out like that with AJ/A7/A2 a close fold?

      This is close I think you played it right until the river.3 flush 3 str lets see what the judge thinks.Safe course says fold givein the pot size river bet. The call call lead out is kind of strong play.

      C-bet flop 0,55-0,6$ and turn bet bigger as well. We still want to get value vs worse. And river is close, i did some stoving and i think it is break-even decision to call or to fold. I still like to fold, cause i expect fish to have more hands, what beat us than we beat, when he donks pot.

      Hello phantommm92,

      Flop: While it's so drawy I'd even bet bigger, ~$0,55.
      River: And while you did show 2 streets of aggression and he now bets pot on river, which often times indicates to a very strong hand. We will see way too often here flushes which try to take value here, since a weak hand wont donk that often here anyways. Therefore I am folding this, even with 2pairs. And of course as well straights are possible.

      Best regards.
