      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.55 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , 3:club:
      3 folds, SB calls $0,25, Hero raises to $2,50, SB calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($5,00) A:diamond: , 8:heart: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1,50, Hero calls $1,50.

      Turn: ($8,00) 7:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $3,00, Hero calls $3,00.

      River: ($14,00) 5:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $8,50, Hero calls $8,50.

      Final Pot: $31,00

      raise flop would have been the best I suppose? I just had no idea how to play on on the turn if he called. He has quite a high WTS but also a high AF so I thaught I might let him bluff. Is River as played a call? I looked very weak so I thaught there was no way out.

      Hi,
      Preflop, a check is best. Villain will call almost every time (60/11, 35wtsd), and you have a hand that doesn't play very well in raised pots (as you saw).
      On the flop, you can either raise/fold to his small donkbet, or call down. As played, I would call the river since the draw missed (which increases the chance of him bluffing). Had the draw completed, it would've been an easy fold.

      Regards,
      Craig
