      I'm very disappointed with this hand. Opponent was 29/2 for 80 hands so I don't think I should even call pre-flop. I don't think I should 3bet without any info on how he reacts to 3bets.

      On flop I was betting for value but I'm not sure what I even get value from I think I should have folded once he raised.

      On turn I think a call is reasonable given odds but following his flop play I also should have folded.

      On river I definitely should have folded as I basically only beat a bluff.

      Hi Kevin,

      Preflop: Considering villain rarely ever raised over 80 hands our call is somewhat light (sure the sample is small but 2% over 80 hands means that he raised 1-2 hands).

      Flop: We should bet/fold here. I don't see why we would call a ck/raise with TPWK from a guy that's been super passive so far.
