      Feel I'm ahead enough given villians line taken to call flop & turn bets. Didn't want to raise as it would isolate me against queens / other better hands.

      Should have folded to river shove given that flush draws have now completed and worse hands than AA will not be shoving here (knew this at time, it was a call out of frustration!)?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $2.03
      Hero:
      $2.24
      MP3:
      $2.56

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Don't think that there is a lot to do. It's really hard to fold scuh a hand while SB is even very aggressive. Although with such an aggression he will most likely have a hand. But he as well has a lot of Kx hands in his range so I wouldn't fold either here. Just note him down with what he played like this.

      Also we can't put the opponent on a flush-draw here. :( Sadly. We could take into account his bet sizing patterns which was like 1/2 flop & turn and then bigger on river = a strong hand. This might be note-worthy as well.

      Best regards.
