      MP2 wins with a flush, jack high (Jc 7c)

      Preflop I chose to call since we are quite deep, the guy seemed aggressive and not very good, and I did not fear overcalls with a gaper IP. That's loose, I know it, I could as well have fold here.

      Flop is lol, he could do this with any2, so I could either have the best hand, or have the right odds to draw in my 5 outs against a good hand.
      Turn is nice, so I value raise his lolbet.

      On the river only the flush gets in, and he bets stronger than before. However I hardly see a fold here since a lot of fishes like to minbet/minbet/potsize, as you surely already know. However I'm not sure a raise would be correct here.

      I don't think about ranges since he showed previously (I was not yet in the game but waiting for the BB to get in) a strong Q4s raised from MP. And here I simply though that thinking about his range would only kill my brain.

      I might 3-bet with 53s being ip, but I think it is a little weak to call ip.
      Raise turn bigger, since board is very drawy. I think smt like 4$ would be fine.
      Getting these odds I´m not folding river
