      minraise on the river is the straight like 99% of the time imo. interested to see what the judges say.

      PF: You have the option of isoraising. I would do so against loose players. Against someone who plays a tighter range (VPIP <15%) I would surely complete instead. Against someone who plays a looser range (VPIP >30%) I would probably raise. Anything in between is dependent on other factors.

      Flop and Turn: You may want to bet closer to pot? Since it's a limped pot you don't need to use 2/3 sizing.

      River: Betting River is clearly a mistake. Calling the raise is a mistake too. His Flop and Turn calling range contains many TX hands like KT QT JT T9 AT. Can we value bet? Probably not. It's really optimistic to try getting a call from anything worse than 2 pairs. Our 2 pair isn't even the top 2 (KQ).

      Our options here are to c/c or c/f. I think I wouldn't mind c/c to catch busted flush draws. Also dependent on his betsize, of course if bet size is smaller I call more often.
