      I am given excellent odds to play a marginal hand against a poor player heads-up. I think it is EV+ to play such a fish even OOP with such a poor hand so I just call.

      Flop is nice for me. He could his plenty of good pairs (from a fish's point of view) and I have a 3rd nut FD. I plan to go c/c to keep the s2p ratio good enough. I don't want fold equity but implied odds against a station (I think this is the right though process?)

      Turn is a mistake imo, when I should have bet way less if I wanted to bet. However I will explain it: he is a fish so he may have raised poor hands that did not make any pair, and I could have taken the pot here instead of waiting for a spade. Also, if he calls, then he is likely to call even more easily if the pot looks big on the river

      Whe he raised me, it was quite obvious he had either 2pairs or a queen, and that he would fold neither. I am given 2.5:1, and he has still 8€ behind, which makes my odds around 6.5:1, which seemed correct to me for a call.

      River is standard shove, and I guess this is just a cooler.

      I´d prefer betting out myself on that board, although c/c might also be fine
      You likely have to b/c turn to then shove river or if you hit your Tx I guess you have to c/c then also on the river
