      MP: $1.42 (35.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $7.94 (198.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.11 (27.8 bb)
      SB: $2.84 (71 bb)
      BB: $2.49 (62.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BTN folds, SB calls $0.14, BB folds

      SB is very loose, about 50/25 (over 65 hands. I'm 20/18 at this table). I'm quite comfortable playing him, stacked him in the first 10 hands played and he's not missed a chance to call my preflop raises since. He has 0 3bet, always just flats.

      Flop: ($0.36) A 6 J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20

      Standard cbet I think. Perhaps prize it a little higher because of the flush draw? I tend to bet about 50-60% pot on boards like this. Usually if they call they're drawing to the flush, and give it up on turn (on a side note, in the micros at least, ppl call flop cbets VERY loose and give it up to a 3barrel)

      Turn: ($0.76) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.18, Hero calls $0.18

      Pretty sure he made the flush. Donking the turn with a smallish bet usually indicates that. Plenty of odds for my nut flush though. See no reason to raise, this type of player usually only bets with a made hand.

      River: ($1.12) 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.12, Hero???

      Feels like he's begging me to push over him. See this all the time on 1/2 and 2/4 (still stuck at the bottom :D ), but the gambler in me falls for it too often (what the hell does he have? 85s, damn, I'm better off not knowing!). This is an easy fold right?

      Hello DonDonko,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Vs such a play you can easily fold it on the river. Doubt that we beat there much, even if he is a loose opponent I wouldn't really expect him potting there with weaker Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
