      Villian is fish, thats all I know. Limps all the time.
      Did I raise river too much? I did it because I was sure he has straight, and he calls.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I prefer a raise fold on that flop versus a min donk.

      As played river is close because based on how flop/turn was played villain can have many better flushes. He also only bets 1 bb on turn followed by pot on river which is not really how I would see a turned straight play (str got there on the turn).

      I think there is value in raising but we may have to raise fold.

      If we would of raised the flop it's less likely that he would show up with random backdoor flush like K3, KQ, etc.

      I didnt raise flop, because it was mutliway and when fish limps, almost never they fold, they just call. Then they limp again on turn, standard play.
      But river, I dont mind losing whole stack with flush J high, because he is fish, and could call with straight, or worse flush.
