      My opponent is a calling station (71/2/1.6/32 in 52 hands - VPIP/PFR/AF/WTSD).

      I cbet the flop for value and protection.

      The A:diamond: on the turn complets a Flush, a straight and brings an overcard. I decided not to bet the turn again (although I could turn my hand into a bluff and try to represent the A). Should I bet/fold this turn or is it ok to xb?

      On the river I hit the set (I would bet around 1/2 pot for value if he checks to me and problably fold to a raise) but he donks pot size. I think he has the flush most of the time (or at least the straight) since he's a passive player. Is it ok to fold my set on the river? :D

      If you play against a station on the Flop, why don't you bet bigger? All these guys think they have a superdraw with their gutshots so 60cent is pretty much a bargain for them, I bet 75cents at the very least here

      The Turn is fine, it blocks the nutflush so that's good

      The river a callingstation bets pot. I do not see a reason here to call here. We are beat by flushes & straights (random ones) and we only beat hands that have no pair because this guy typically does not turn a pair into a bluff
