      Preflop would have called as well.
      On the flop I dont like the chR, I would accept the odds given and call with oesd + 2oc. With the 1card draw we dont have much implied odds, he could have many combos wich we dont have good equity against.
      I would have taken the passive line all the way in the hand, despite the drawheavy board it's kind of a wa/wb situation, plus we have a draw ourselves with the Q.
      As played, on the river with that push it is very hard for him to call with a weaker hand, plus folds all the busted draws.

      dunno about preflop. Seems like 3bet is better to me ;/

      indeed ch/r flop isn't that good... Doubt u have fe vs fish so call is best. When we call and hit that turn than lead out! Now as played I like obv a cbet. Don't like the push otr, doubt worse hands call is. I'd bet $10 vs a J... But actually thats only vs QJ and KJ which isn't that much. On the other hand ch/f looks too weak and ch/c won't be good since he's passive.

      Hello BruceLee89,

      Assuming that the opponent is kind of loose I don't really see any reason to Check/Raise the flop. Vs any hand you are ahead and he is folding you most likely beat with Ace high as well. :D Therefore I'd at the best just Check/Call and reevaluate the further actions. Don't try to bluff a loose opponent.

      Best Regards.

      call preflop > 3bet? Maybe this is also a value3bet vs that villain?

      Both options are practically fine. Didn't have any stats on him, he could be a fish who plays 60/5 as well. :D
