      Hello Ickki,

      Rather CB the flop, we don't have the implied odds on the turn to Call and nor your raise on the river doesn't make sense. What worse hands Call you there?

      Best Regards.

      I could imagine any heart would call me on the river if my bet sizing was better.

      Not really, he has to be super bad for that...
