      Depending on other stats on the villain here I might go for a check-raise here against an aggro fish who's the pfr. Not sure though. If he's loose I think the overpot bet sizing is probably fine since he's gonna call you with a lot worse hands whatever the pot size so perhaps best to try to get the most value.

      On the turn, I would definitely bet here against a fish to get the most value and definitely fire on the river as well. He's going to call you with a lot hands that you beat. You might want to bet the river a bit bigger, though.

      On the river, a shove over his raise is fine. He's so loose and aggressive, he's probably gonna raise/call you with a lot of flushes and straigts and sets. So, I think your play is fine, you just got coolered.

      Hello Mopenza,

      Well, first of all you should already Bet the turn yourself. :) But as played kinda dumb spot, most likely I'd still bet a bit bigger ~$0,80. But as he raises I doubt that I am getting away.

      The question rather is what his overall range can be there. Most likely he may even raise there with a lot of flushes but as well may have QJ or whatsoever hands. For example:

      Board: 4:club: T:spade: J:spade:  J:diamond:  Q:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    35.00%  30.00%   5.00% { QJs, JTs, AsKs, AsQs, AsJs, AsTs, As9s, Ks9s, As8s, Ks8s, 9s8s, As7s, Ks7s, As6s, 7s6s, As5s, 6s5s, As4s, As3s, As2s, QJo, JTo }
      UTG+1  65.00%  60.00%   5.00% { JcTc }

      As you see against his made flushes, FH and of course made straight flushes it's still considerable to raise. But the question is if he really can have such a wide range? You should have some kind of overview with the 150+ hands.

      Although most likely he would have Bet the turn with Jx. So we might even exclude QJ.

      Best Regards.
