      first of all, hello and welcome to the pokerstrategy forums! we hope that you enjoy your stay and find the content useful. :spade:

      as you are completing preflop, postflop since you didn't hit your set you should just give up and avoid mistakes. that means check/fold all the way.
      that is not a good board to take a stab on the turn because it brings in a few draws and you are not going to make better hands to fold.

      as played, definitely fold the turn to his raise. you are not going to be ahead there.
      since you hit the river (but you shouldn't have been there) you should rather bet yourself and fold to a raise.
      he is not going to raise a lot of worse hands since your play could easily mean a flushdraw as well.

      Thx u very much! may I also add his stats:
      Seat 1: Player1 ( €1.90 EUR ) - VPIP: 53, PFR: 16, 3B: 7, AF: 1.7, Hands: 74

      Would this have changed anything above? He was playin pretty loose.

      you are welcome :)

      as to whether the given stats would change anything... no, not really.
      if anything it rather means that you should be more inclined to fold because he seems pretty passive.
