      20/12/25/0.0/-
      0.8/100/50/17 (W$SD=100%(1))

      Preflop:
      Standard raise

      Flop:

      I'm bet/folding this against a nitty player who doesn't go to showdown too much.

      Turn:
      Should I bet/fold this as well? My reasoning for giving up is: flush has arrived, and only better jacks or Tx hands will call my bet. Maybe KQ with another spade but I doubt.

      River:
      He makes a small bet, however with his agressive factor I just don't think there are a lot of 88-99 hands he's betting.

      Bet turn, we get value from all of his straight draws that have turned into combo draws which allbeit is not a great draw on a 3 flush double paired board but I definitely still see value here.

      As played on the river we still beat alot of hands that called the flop and we're getting a very decent price, so I make the call this time and then make a note on villain and adjust accordingly.

      Pre flop I would just 2x or 2.5x from the button as standard.

      Tnx for the reply.

      About the 2bb opening, I thought NL25 was too soon to do so but I'm gonna start doing it from now on. Curious how it will work out :]

      Hello Zeffke,

      Rather Bet the turn for protection and maybe even get value from worse as 1card FD or whatsoever than Check it behind and even give up. He could easily have just some PP which is block-betting there or even turning his hand into bluff.

      Best Regards.
