      Villain played 48/0 and a bit aggressive post flop but no real reads.

      very drawy flop but I cbet because he could have some random gutshot or flushdraw or even overcards and pay me at least one street. (the cbet should have been bigger here right like almost pot size?)

      turn: lots of hand that beats me now, so just c/f but a minbet is like a check :)

      hit a straight but still decided to fold on the river given there are one better straight possible and the flush. slight over bet so we have to be good about 35% to make the call? hmm not sure. call or fold?

      Hello yayasarika,

      Actually I like your play here. It's so often that they slowplay like that by betting turn very smallish. Nice hand! Not many worse hands will call you on the turn anyways if we even do raise, not worth!

      Best Regards.
