      Villain 47/27 on the first 20 hands so villain can play some hands.

      On the flop I thought that it doesn't make too much sense for him to donk a very strong hand so I decided to float him.

      On the turn I think I have 2 options, either to raise bluff him as I expect him to very often have a draw or to float him again. I've decided to float him again because I didn't expect him to 3 barrel air here and to bet on any non- :spade: river except a T I think

      Not really sure about your turn float, since if he is betting turn with his draws he may also bet rievr and I think you can´t call him down with AK high
      So instead of floating I like raising to get value from draws or force smt like 88 to b/f
      Also not sure about your river bet. He would msot likely not going to c/f his Jx or Qx, so question is if you can make him fold smt like 88
      I think betting 6.5$ it is not so likely, so I´d either go 8$ bet or check back and expect to be ahead his flushdraws
