      villain is a fish, 28/3/0 AF:2, ftcb:17, fttb:3/6

      my standard is to bet big here with a FH, pretty much only because of building up the pot and therefore big implieds if i hit

      turn bet big again, i got FD+oesd, once he raises given the odds i think calling is standard

      river is the tricky one imo, vs a competent opponent id probably instafold here vs an overjam

      dont think fish has a flush here, for a fish the standard for a FD is to c/c c/c c here, so its like 56, 67, 68 here but it just make no sense to minraise 2p or sents here imo...

      so, closed my eyes and called river tbh

      Hi Zumpar,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that you played it fine here.

      We can't really fold the river once we called the turn to hit our flush. Villain can be bluffing (occasionally) or raising straights that he just can't fold on the river. There are also worse flushes (along with the better ones) and we only need a bit better than 33% pot odds.
