      Vilain is a very loose regular,SB steal 58%. So I will flat almost anytwo card.
      54% cbet flop oop, 63% cbet turn oop.

      On the flop, I think float on trips board is best way to play hand, since I can't represent anything. On the turn, I think I have an any raise versus his double barreling range. He did call and snap lead river. I thought with a low flush I had to bluff catch.

      Vs guys like him I almost never fold BB vs SB but I would suggest being really careful what you flat and what you 3bet. This 52s would usually be a 3bet for me..

      As played, I don't like the turn raise.. You rep almost nothing imo, you would prob flat again with a lot of your range and rep only 9x when you raise, which yoou 3bet on the flop sometimes so you don't even have all your 9x combos. You don't raise Qx either so you basically never look like a value hand imo though he might view it differently.

      After your turn play I think river is very very close, way closer than you think since he can also have better flushes in his range, FH too ofc.. I would lean towards calling because you both played it weird and you get an extra bit of information where the EV is unclear whether you call or fold (should not be a big difference).
