      Villain is whale 76/33, AF1.3, WTSD 31
      Aggr freq 40/25/19 on flop/turn/river

      Not sure whether to re re raise on the flop. This min raise worries me a bit, so I decide to call. Also a bit surprised by the overbet on the turn, but call to blufcatch and have flush outs. River folded.

      Feel I could have done more with the hand, but not sure what. Any comments?

      Hello MoneyStef,

      Seems to be fine, I would have played the same way. Nice hand! We can't Call the river cause it's quite obvious that we ain't ahead there anymore.

      We might even sometimes just fold the turn cause now he could as well have FH there. But for the reason that we had also the A and he could just turn down his aggression on the river we might be able to Call it down and reevaluate the river.

      Best Regards.
