      seems okay...depending on what kind of stats or image you have on the player. you may consider folding if his showdown percentage is high and barrelling percentage on the river is low.

      Hello Slurpee,

      Preflop: Don't flat like that! It's just horrible. You gonna most likely play the hand in multiway pot and it's rarely be very good. Either 3bet it or just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Exactly that even happens when you kind of start to overplay your hand. But against his stack there is not much to do. I'd also call it down on the river. But what would you do if he ship for full 100BB? :)

      Best Regards.
