      I think you played it fine.

      River bet would be quite thin but doable. The higher his WTSD combined with a low W$SD, the more inclined I would be to value bet because I don't ever expect him to fold Tx, JJ and possibly not even 99, 8x while also not having Kx since they lead turns often with that.

      Btw, why do you make it just 8bb vs a fish with a clear value hand? Is that your general plan?

      Well i saw this guy was tilting a little because of a couple of hands ago, so i thought 8 was plenty an could keep his weaker holdings in.

      I mean, if he's tilting I think the bigger the better since he just wants to see a flop and get his money in asap. :D

      Oh, sorry about that, just realized it's NL50 not NL100 :facepalm:

      Fail on my part. 8 is definitely fine then but 9-10 can't be bad and you get him to stack off lighter on flops because he has less money to put in.
