      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (CO): 101.4 BB
      BTN: 100 BB
      SB: 106.8 BB
      BB: 75.8 BB
      UTG: 54.56 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:heart: A:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 3 BB

      Flop: (8.4 BB, 2 players) 6:club: 5:diamond: 8:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 6 BB, BB calls 6 BB

      Turn: (20.4 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero bets 17 BB, BB calls 17 BB

      River: (54.4 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:
      BB bets 25.84 BB, Hero calls 25.84 BB

      BB shows 7:diamond: A:diamond: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 12%, Flop 35%, Turn 34%)
      Hero mucks A:heart: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Sixes) (Pre 88%, Flop 65%, Turn 66%)
      BB wins 100.8 BB

      opp on the BB is a fish (therefore I'm adjusting sizing pre to build the pot asap)
      I got no reads on him but he's the std passive fish..

      otr I'm lost. I don't see him donking 8x or busted draws like this .. Therefore, I really belived him Jx and better.. if it was Jh for instance, I'd be more willing to get it in but this way I really don't know .. Am I missing value? thx

      UTG open seems too large to me, unless you are actively trying to exploit multple fishes behind you. Usually when your opening range is weaker you should use smaller raise sizes.

      Rest of the hand is played out fine. No way I'm ever folding the River. Our hand is way too strong and we get great pot odds.
