      Was my play reasonable, I should have bet more on the flop, but I guess that wouldn't make sence, cause I had the nut FD.

      I don't get it why villain called me on the flop, but...how's my play (Should have check/folded river?)

      IMO well played flop. I would bet more on the turn ~$5.
      I would blockbet ~1/3 of the pot /fold river. Vilain limp/called pf from MP which normally is a small pp (or QQ+ sometimes).
      His raise allin means business

      The trouble with a blockbet on the river is, even around $5, he pushes, then the pot is around $32 and you only have to pay $6 to see it, roughly. Can you fold those odds, even if most often beaten? You only need to win 16% to break even.

      Maybe best here is check/call the river, allowing worse hands to bluff, and losing least when beaten. If you check and he shoves, you can decide what he is about. If he checks behind, you win the showdown most often, if he bets small you call, and may win.

      If you bet and he shoves, you nearly never win, but it is probably a crying call under the circumstances.

      nh - his call with 66 on the flop was horrible. An alternative line is to c/r the turn: this way, you can exploit people that call too many flops and try to move you off the hand on the turn.

      BTW: Please don't post results as it may bias the discussion...

      Youre quite right.
