      I've been telling my self not to open these in SB but...

      Decided to open here as villain seemed a bit to the fishy side, maybe a bit to early to tell anyways heres my story :P

      I opend as a bluff, he calls which is sorta weak...
      Flop connects with FD's, so maybe just give up here?
      I bet as I don't see villain hitting to oftent here, FD would continue...

      Was gonna X/f here, but when the A came I kinda thought this should make FD's fold, so bet to give him a chance to fold, I should properly have been thinking about villain here, as he seems passive, bluffs don't work well

      Decided not to bet here, theres a few missed draws, but if villain doesn't fold Ax, he might have one..

      I don't really mind raising this hand in SB. The problem comes when we start to fight for every pot postflop.

      I think this is one of the boards where we can just give up here.
      Board looks dryish and against an unknown fish we can just check/fold here. I doubt we have too much fold equity on this board and when we get called we don't stand really great.

      As played, I think betting the turn is fine.
      Ace hits his range as well, but I think he could be able to fold hands like KT/QJ/Q7 etc.

      Once we get called on two streets, checking the river and planning to fold against a bet is fine.
