      I'm comfortable with how I played this hand except for the call on the river. Was it too loose a call?

      Imo you can even isolate preflop.

      As played I´d probably just call on the flop - this is multiway and you likely just isolate yourself, not much worse calling you when you raise here. Therefore even the 2nd barrel doesn´t make much sense. If you were aggressive preflop, it could be different but not here. And ye, rather fold the river, He can have a set here too often.

      Hello belayd,

      Flop: A bit overplayed on flop while it's just a freeplay. Rather just Call it and reevaluate on further streets.

      As played
      Turn: As you went for maximum value then should as well bet the turn.
      River: Kinda close, while I don't really see him shipping a lot worse hands therefore we likely only beat bluffs/missed draws, but do we want to catch it while we even don't know the opponent since the VPIP/PFR doesn't say much how he does play postflop. But overall, you should have just Called on flop and would be much easier to play the hand and maybe even at some point Check behind on turn for pot control. So for conclusion I'd say that while we getting that great odds and sometimes we might even see some worse hand here, maybe even missed draws should be doable. We need only like 23% equity there and which we likely even are getting.

      Best regards.
