      I'd probably call because of the big pot odds, but I'm not at all sure if it's the correct move, it'd be interesting to hear some opinions on this one ^^
      btw, why not c-bet the flop? too draw-heavy?

      The board texture is bad for a c-bet. I also like the bet/fold river. I think it's likely that he has something. If he would have total crap, he would bet the flop.

      The texture wasn't that great for a c bet, I would do it here heads up anyway. Then I would have fired again and maybe taken it down on the turn. Check/call the river. Given his raise size on the river he probably does have a better hand, but this is probably just what he wants you to think knowing you are weak, a good player will take this one away from you every time with 3.5 stacks on the button
