      Pre-flop: I assume that the opponent would call with most suited connectors and small-medium pairs because because with stronger hands he would play more aggressively. This gives me an equity of ~52%.

      Flop: now this where it gets confusing for me. With the range that I have given him pre-flop, his cold call doesn't seem to make much sense. The only explanation is that he might be slowplaying nuts because there aren't many strong draws.

      Turn: don't know what to say.

      River: pretty obvious that he is ahead of me so I folded. What could he have had?

      This hand is really complicated to me, was my play right?

      He is holding 44,22 or Qx of diamonds :)

      I'd fold turn cause I put him on set there.. but I am a bit nitty overall.

      I thought that he has something like that but I still somehow believed that I might have the best hand on the turn, however, on the river it was quite obvious that I was way behind.
      Yep, my biggest leak is that I'm too aggressive at times, especially after flop when overplaying hands. I think that being a nit at NL10 is much more profitable than being aggressive and I'm trying to switch to that side :)

      Hello TheBrownie,

      Well, I'd most likely Bet bigger on flop & turn to avoid get raised. :) Although as played then just Bet/Fold the turn, I doubt that he is raising you there with a lot worse. Even against a min-raise there is no point to Call.

      Best Regards.
