      I love when a day starts like this :f_biggrin:

      Obviously, the villain is a fish. (Did I ever post a hand where he's not?)

      Flop: my call is kinda close...I just thought well, you might have AK and I'm leading so far. Plus your bet is not very impressive. On top of that, I can try floating you out on turn should you check.

      Turn: things are getting a bit worse, but the price improves. I think it's not a good call anyway. His preflop line probably indicates something he considers really strong :) So fold here?

      River: :pokerface: :f_cool: Fish wins. (Another one, me).

      Is it what referred to as "overplaying your set-mine cards" and is a leak of mine? :f_frown:

      I like your preflop play here.

      I prefer folding the flop. We didn't hit our set, villain's range could be pretty tight here, and also have a player behind.
      Also we wouldn't love if he bet the turn and we will have hard time calling him, so I'd rather just let this go here.

      Turn is really bad card for us, and I think folding here is the best.

      As played, there's nothing else we can do on the river.
