      Villain is very very loose 65/1, I did not see him bluff over ~60 hands. He's not afraid to fold and as far I have seen him, he played pretty much always nuts (he did hit many flops over this small sample, lucky man).

      I don't know why I did not bet turn, probably I expected him to raise again after that minraise on flop.

      I suppose he was holding some suited combination expecting me to pay him off when he hits.

      Is my fold there too tight?

      As played bf to a raise or cr the 2 cent min bet,with fold to RR

      Turn I would bet pot size for value protection if your going to CR then make it bigger like .40 or even just shove. only 3 hands have you beat AA AK KK, AK being the most likely.

      River you still need to bet/fold to shove

      Hello QubaBuba,

      Preflop: From early position rather fold the hand than raise it up.

      As played
      Flop: If you planning to Call it anyways, any kind of bet then rather Bet yourself to as well gain some fold equity.

      As played if flop was Check/Called
      Turn: Rather donk yourself and build up the pot and reevaluate further actions, not really big fan of Check/Raise here actually and as well your Check/Raise is too smallish.

      As played if turn was Check/Raised
      River: Still rather Bet/Fold than Check/Fold directly, there is still a lot value from hands like Ax and so on, maybe even trips.

      Best regards.
