      SB is 33/7 after 170 hands, no reads, but he is passive fish (agg 1.7)
      I know that after i call turn i shouldn't fold on river, but i think that is super hard to fold that on turn. I am really lost in this hand and i know that i played it terrible. :f_frown:

      Hey Malogar,

      Preflop I would just make it $1 to go. You give yourself a better chance of taking down the pot immediately or isolating yourself vs just one opponent rather than multiway.

      Checking flop is fine.

      Betting turn for value is fine when you make your straight. Vs raise I would just fold. I know it sucks to fold a straight, but the best case scenario for you is villain has an Ace and you are chopping. The rest of the time he has a 6, or something like Ac7c and is freerolling vs you. It's really unlikely he'd ever raise turn with worse.
