      Total pot: $0.71

      first off, im unsure if this is even a profitabl play preflop. A guy with big stack and who was kinda fishy was sitting to my left though so I decided to call and hope that he called aswell but he fold preflop :D . and board is dry flop so i expect preflop raiser to cbet a lot here so i check.

      turn is kinda a mandetory bet i think and its fine. river I decided to overbet about 1.5 times pot cuz i think he might call with a PP, probably going for a 60% bet would be more good, he raise big PPs on flop i think now 2nd thought. what would you bet river veris?

      Hello tryhardnoob,

      I'd start to build up the pot even from flop. :) And most likely just bet all streets. But as played I don't really see many hands which pay you anyways if you even overbet there. I guess I'd go for smaller bet ~$0,50. But of course overall it ain't a huge mistake to play it this way on river while you expect the opponent being loose enough.

      Best regards.
