      Thought I wouldn't be happy to stack off PF vs xem, so I flatted.
      Then I just called him down as I thought AQ was possible, maybe AJs, and AK.
      Wasn't really putting him on a midpair.
      Notes to player added :D

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Preflop flat call is fine. You don't feel you have dynamic to stack off and you don't really want to fold from this spot either.

      I would definitely call flop/turn.

      River you might be able to find a hero-fold. Many villains check back AQ/AJ on a flush river since they are scared you have it. Also there is a possibility villain double barreled flush draw and got there.

      I don't hate your call or anything, but maybe postflop stats could help you decide. Perhaps villains river aggression falls off dramatically on the river.

      You are right.
      But actually AF on river is what gave me the last hint for the call, being:
      Flop AF: 3
      Turn AF: 2
      River AF: 4

      WTSD: 31
      W$SD: 50

      Ok cool, River Afq can sometimes be useful to check too. If it's 30% or above you should probably call.

      I have great difficulty interpreting AFq, do you have any general hint?

      Obviously it ties in with other stats, so that's what this is, just a /general/ hint.

      20% probably not bluffing.
      30% probably bluffing sometimes.

      25% is probably balanced.
