      villain is 58/22 over 100 hands. has 3bet people relentlessly and with weird sizings. open raises 8x etc etc so basically one of those players where we know a big pot will erupt. i just bet bet bet with the hand thinking he'd pay me off with worse on every street and was barely worried about the flush.. did i overplay this? i don't know how else to play it because i had <PSB left by the river. what should we do in spots where we see a bad river but have lined ourselves up to get stacks in and have <PSB left? i'm not saying this is a terrible river, but it could have been better.. like 2 :spade: :D

      There's a ton of 2P and sets that might call you down here as a form of weird fish slowplay.

      The last thing I would do is check/fold a set of kings on the river to this guy :) If you agree that we never check/fold, then it's just a negative freeroll situation and we stack ourselves.

      Best of luck,

      Against a fish with top pair or better its just bet bet bet go for max value. So many worse hands can keep calling.

      Good job.
