      On flop I didn't raise as I felt like I didn't have enough equity to go broke but my hand was good enough to call for odds.

      On the turn I was torn on calling or not, FD+Pair has lots of out but I wasn't even sure if those were clean and well probably I shouldn't have called in the first place.

      Given my call and the trips I called the river a lil mindlessly (leak I'm fixing! I become a bit reckless when I close stuff), but that was probably not a good idea, as I don't expect him to raise me on flop and 3 Barrel a top pair or basically anything less than a set. Yes maybe the possibility of a FD bluff from him, something like Q+FD but well he's not really aggressive and I don't think he's capable of such bluffs. Even if he would, I feel like the chances he has it are too low and I shouldn't have called.

      Hi. Easy bet fold on flop. I think he doesnt have too many speculative semi bluff hands preflop and he probably doesnt get too out of line postflop.

      We even lose to a ton of higher flushdraws and we have reverse implied odds
