      Hello,
      Preflop: Villain is pretty fishy so I'm inclined to call preflop with a pretty decent hand, I think 4betting would be overplaying and he is giving good odds.

      Flop: Don't think I need to donk here so I'm check/calling

      Turn: As he checks behind I'm going on the offensive and his raise gives me good odds to call.

      River: Missed the flush so I give up the hand

      Thanks

      P.S I just moved up to NL5 because I had more than 25 buy ins for NL2 and I've made $60 in 1000 hands. I'm so glad to be out of NL2 :D

      With my little experience, i think it depends much on the opponent. He seems too passive, so i guess his range is 99+, AQ+. If he had an overpair he would bet flop for sure.
      Also if he had made a 3 bet of 0.6 rather than 0.45, would you still call? Maybe you are still dominated. Smells like AK to me.

      Hello seanspurs87,

      For the given odds I wouldn't threw away either my hand, so seems like a nice hand.

      Best Regards.
