      Is it ok to call this preflop from time to time? He is very aggresive and steals alot. I think that 3b would be overplayed, and also he wouldn't fold that many times. I don't want to go busted with QJ, but also want to stand out against his steals.

      On the flop I decided for floating with my overcards.

      I am not sure for the turn, I planned for check/call or maybe eaven check/raise. What do you think, should I donk the turn?

      As well as the turn, I played the river weird (when I look it now). I was thinking that he probably wont pay me with worse, and I could induce his bluf. I think it was a mistake. Is it better to bet there?

      His stats: 38/28/39/71/1,7/151 (VPIP/PFR/Steal/Fto3b/AF/Hands)

      Hello Alleen86,

      Since you hit the TP there on turn and we even have a SD, I might prefer as well Check/Call there better, would be ugly to face a raise. Otherwise I'd likely just donk the river myself while I just don't want to see Check behind. While he still could Call with a lot worse.

      Best regards.
