      Villain is 22/7 in 45 hands, 0.6 AF.

      I'll be honest about my thoughts here.
      Turn: OMG I HAZ THE ROYAL FLUSH DRAW!
      River: I have the second nutz! Since he's probably gonna pay me off w/ any spade, i'm trying to get as much value as possible.

      Should I bet smaller on the river? If so, when he raises, can I find a fold?

      Hello M1rCea,

      Preflop: While you have so many loose opponents and with small stacks on the table I don't like that much the raise from UTG with ATo.

      As played
      Postflop: What worse hand pays you on the turn? Why do you even 3barrel there?

      Best Regards.

      1.wouldn't it be reasonable to think that many other spades, 2pairs, etc pay us on the turn? Since he seems like a weak player.

      I admit the river was quite overplayed. My mind somehow thought I have the nutz there and since he is so loose he almost never has an Ace of Spades there.

      2. Could you please elaborate a bit on how being vs loose, short stacks influences our opening range?

      Oh, the beauty of cash games.

      Thank you,
      Daniel

      Not really, you wont get 2 streets of value there. ;) Rather Check the turn and maybe bet for value on river. :P

      Take a look at the table, you have like 4 shorties there who could easily just ship over your raise, that's the problem and you wont be able to Call or did you plan to Call?
