      Anon table.

      BTN was a huge fish, around 70% vpip as I remember.
      Bet/fold turn against worse pairs / draws?
      As played ch/fold turn/river, even for the given odds?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: I'd go for at least $3 raise even here whilst also being deep with BTN + loose opponents.
      Postflop: Rather Check/Fold if you go for a Check, cause you rarely going to be very good there and it's going to be difficult to Call the river. Even Bet/Folding might be close cause you don't really get called from that many worse hands though it's much better line than calling it as you did and never know where you stand.

      Best Regards.
