      Hello Tombic,

      Flop: I don't really get it. Why ain't ya just raising the flop? If he is potting he may easily even pay you. ;) I'd raise the flop.

      As played
      Turn: What's the idea behind making it 1/2 bet? Rather make it near pot and protect your hand.

      As played
      River: Well... as the FD completes I doubt he is Check/Raising even with worse here. Most likely has you beat. His line screams also towards a draw on flop/turn. But mainly played wrong on early streets. The only reasonable hope is him to have something like K7 which is playing this way. :D But would he even play 2pairs that aggressive on such a board? While couple of draws completed. If you think he would and based on your table reads then sure the min-raise Call ain't purely off.

      Best Regards.
