      Hero wins $6.11

      Preflop I did not adjusted my opening sizing. I guess that does not change there much.

      Flop: when checked, possible value hands are: straight flush draws, Ax,Tx,Jx,Kx,Qx. - well a lot.
      Sizing I guess was 3/4 pot.
      Against a minraise I go into call mode if bets are under pot size.

      Turn: As for I have A for flush draw, I like to call and either catch bluffs or bust him on river flush card.

      Flop: Vs a good opponent I will consider checking back sometimes. I don't think we have 3 streets of value on such a board where there are so many monsters.

      When we get check/raise, I almost want to fold, but the fact that it's a min-raise makes me prefer calling a lot. If he makes a huge raise I would probably fold since we lose to so many two pairs and KQ.

      Turn: Now we even lose to flush draws. Without the A of spades, I would fold immediately but with the nut flush draw I think we can make a crying call again and hope he somehow has a worse hand

      River: he checks, so check back and hope to win some small % of the time.

      Once you see the hand he showed up with, take a note that he overplays top pair no kicker on wet boards and be less willing to fold (and put more pressure on him with some 3bet bluffs).
