      Hello, you finally got me here on the forums, ain't it awesome? :)

      After a pretty annoying swing I experienced in last few days I decided to try to have some of my hands evaluated.

      Villain is unpredictable fish 83/6 Aggr 52% over 53 hands. Was it a reasonable call on the river or should I just have folded?

      I am having great problems with players like this, nl2 is full of them and I rarely know what to expect. Every one of them is different. Sometimes he has bottom pair, sometimes he shows 72o full house.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, 4 folds, MP2 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.19) 3, 5, A (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.16, MP2 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.51) 2 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.40, MP2 calls $0.38.

      River: ($1.31) K (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70.

      Final Pot: $2.71.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(Ac Qh).
      MP2 shows a flush, ace high(9d Td).

      MP2 wins with a flush, ace high(9d Td).

      And he's mackerel, because he bit me hard. :)

      Hello QubaBuba,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      I even like your raise on turn and I would likely as well do it for protection. Since often times such min-donk is a draw or a weak hand. Otherwise I'd likely just fold it on river, we likely are beat against his line where he took a small bet on turn and big one on river.

      Best regards.
