      Hi ! On a small sample ( 30 hands ) fish has VPIP 89 and PFR 42. He didn't represent too much, that's why I called the river bet. He slowplayed AA all the way and I didn't think he has Ax or AA because of his passive play on the flop. However, I think that with a blocking bet of $1.80 I would've reduced losses and folded to a raise there ( on the river ). Thanks !

      Hi rahica

      I think you overplayed your hand big time on all streets.

      Why are you pot donking your weak draw hand into two players? Why can't the pfr have Ax?

      I think he can easily have that given your flop line.

      So if he has Ax he is calling all the way, waiting for a diamond, a K or an 8 to show up so I can complete my draw?

      So why did we donk the flop that big with a weak draw? That's the main question.

      I would check fold turn as played or call a small bet at best (1/2 or less).
